The negotiators of the European Parliament and of the Twenty-seven have reached an agreement on Tuesday to set a quota of at least 40% of women in the management positions of large listed European companies by the end of June 2026.

The directive will create an open and transparent procedure so that the non-executive boards of community companies have at least 40% women by June 2026. In this sense, there will be binding measures to achieve this objective.

Member States that approve quotas for both executive and non-executive boards, the minimum presence of women will be 33%. In addition, countries will have to create a penalty system that is punitive with companies that do not meet these quotas.

The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, has celebrated this agreement on her Twitter social network account and has shown her gratitude to all those who have made it possible. “It is a great day for women in Europe. It is also a great day for companies. Because more diversity means more growth, more innovation”, underlined the head of the Community Executive.

The provisional agreement, announced by the French presidency of the EU, will still need the approval of the plenary session of the European Parliament and the Council to be definitive.

He knows in depth all the sides of the coin.
