Consejos, mujeres y cazatalentos: la experiencia británica



En relación con la presencia femenina en los consejos de administración, en el último número del Company Law Newsletter (nº 350, 11 marzo 2014, pp. 5-6) se hacía referencia a un informe elaborado a instancias del Gobierno británico que destaca el papel de las firmas de cazatalentos a la hora de promover una mayor presencia femenina en los consejos. 


Aunque en estos momentos y en el índice FTSE100, el 19% de los administradores son ya mujeres, el informe añade recomendaciones que deben de hacer que aquellas firmas fomenten un mayor presencia femenina. Transcribo algunas de las recomendaciones: 

Search firms should, in collaboration with their clients, discuss each woman on the long-list and aim to have at least one woman whom they would ‘strongly recommend’ the client should meet and put forward onto the shortlist of all executive searches for board positions.

  The code, as it stands, should be considered the minimum standard and, as with the original code, search firms should work together an articulate the requirements of an upper tier to the code, including how assessment should be made to establish who should become part of a ‘super group’.

  Search firms should be more overt on their websites, marketing literature and when talking to clients about their commitment to the code. They should also be encouraged to share their hiring data as well as some narrative and case studies of successes”.
