EHRC report on ‘Gender Diversity on Boards’

In May 2012, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published ‘Gender Diversity on Boards: The Appointment Process and the Role of Executive Search Firms’.

The report was written by Elena Doldor, Susan Vinnicombe, Mary Gaughan and Ruth Sealy from the International Centre for Women Leaders at Cranfield University.
