Board and management team positions in listed companies - the challenges of women's career development

Based on the project's interview and survey results, it became clear that the selection of women to board and management team positions is influenced by numerous interconnected factors related to the operating environment, company characteristics and the individual. These results are consistent with previous studies. The recruitment process emerges as an opportunity to ensure gender equality in order to find the best talent among board member candidates. Women's own activity is also important. Quota legislation can serve as an enabling transition period tool to increase the number of women on the boards of listed companies.
