Published by IFCpublications
Research suggests that the presence of women on boards contributes to improving corporate performance. Yet, globally over 90 percent of directorships are held by men.

To better understand the opportunities for and obstacles to increasing the number of women on boards, IFC invited over 15 prominent male chairpersons, CEOs, and directors of listed and unlisted companies across a range of industries and countries to share their opinions on how women add value to the corporate decision-making process.

In this report, "Women on Boards: A Conversation with (Male) Directors," these male leaders offer practical ideas on how to encourage recruitment of women to boards through networking, training, and improving transparency of the director nomination process.
