At the FutureBoards Cross-border Dialogue at the Royal Norwegian Embassy in London, we took a closer look at the state of play on gender balance in the financial sector. We explored similarities and differences experienced by women in finance in UK and Norway. And more importantly: We asked what is the role of investors and boards, and how can they, and how should they contribute. Please find full program here.
