Walls and ceilings in Malta’s listed companies
March 8, 2021
International research has shown that increasing board diversity is not only the right thing to do; it also leads to better business outcomes. Increased gender diversity at all levels, leads to smarter decision-making, contributes to an organization’s bottom line, powers innovation, and protects against blind spots, among other benefits. To this end, Seed analysed the Board composition of Malta’s listed companies and presented the main headline results in Glass.
The report also gives the European dimension and presents research on the importance of a diversified corporate governance. 21 women directors and entrepreneurs give their perspective too through short interviews.
Glass walls and ceilings are unfortunately not a thing of the past. They remain very much in the present. And unless action is taken, they will remain in the future too.
The boardroom remains a glass house. It’s up to us to break the walls and ceilings.
