Re:Gender works to end gender inequity and discrimination against girls and women by exposing root causes and advancing research-informed action. Working with multiple sectors and disciplines, we are shaping a world that demands fairness across difference.
From the NY Times: At a conference in Beijing, businesswomen discussed how to work effectively with men, and how to increase their ranks in the boardroom. A report released at the conference titled "Accelerating Board Diversity" revealed the "dismal reality of women's lack of access to board appointments." The anomaly was Norway, which, thanks to 2008 quotas, now boast women in over 40% of board appointments. The trend seems to be catching on in Europe as well.
