Brazil

The 30% Club is a global campaign led by Chairs and CEOs taking action to increase gender diversity at board and senior management levels. Under the leadership of Global Chair, Ann Cairns, the campaign continues to expand its international footprint with presence in fourteen countries/ regions around the world.


In October 2018 the 30% Club advanced its global mission to foster gender balance on boards and C-suites in Brazil by joining forces with Brazil’s Call For Action Movement (CFAM). CFAM, was a local business-led initiative launched in 2017 in response to an annual survey conducted by Enlight on the level of female representation on Brazilian Boards. The 2017 survey report highlighted a lack of progress over the prior three years and recognized the importance of setting aspirational voluntary goals to drive progress. 
We support diversity in its very broadest sense and while gender has been our starting point, we fully realize that considerations of ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background and beyond are all part of the journey - and that gender identities are themselves evolving rapidly. We believe that only those organizations that foster truly inclusive cultures - cultures that embrace women who look, act and, importantly, THINK differently - can reach their full potential to positively impact their people, their markets and their communities.

The 30% Club Chapter Brazil is inviting listed companies to set the following aspirational targets:

  • zero all male boards on IBrX 100 listed companies by 2021 (targeting 34 companies with all male boards in 2020)
  • at least 30% women on boards of B3 IBrX 100 listed companies by 2025

 

2021 will see a strong focus on intensifying engagement with Chairs and CEOs encouraging laggard companies with all-male boards or one & done boards to join the campaign and to appoint at least 30% women on boards by 2025. The over-arching strategy is to act as a public voice for gender balance on boards and leadership teams by working collaboratively with other bodies to spread awareness, grow the pipeline and stimulate demand primary to increase female board directors in Brazil.

Working groups

  • Investors

    Main aims

    The purpose of the Investors Group is to help coordinate the investment community’s approach to gender diversity. In particular, to explain the investment case for more diverse boards; to encourage all investors to engage on the issue of board diversity with chairs and management teams and to consider diversity when voting on the appointment and re-election of board members.

     As asset owners and asset managers we are responsible for the stewardship of the investments we make on behalf of our members and clients. Part of that responsibility includes the assessment of the boards and senior management teams of our investee companies.

    We believe boards that genuinely embrace cognitive diversity, as manifested through appropriate gender representation and a broad spectrum of skills and experience, are more likely to achieve better outcomes for investors. There is increasing research to support this hypothesis. 

    The members of the Investors Group in Brazil are: Blackrock, Hermes Investment Management, Previ, Petros, Robeco and Leblon Equities. In February 2019 the group sent a collective letter to Chairs of listed companies in Brazil to highlight the importance of gender diversity and to outline their expectations for change in board composition. They will continue to engage constructively with companies, specially the ones from Novo Mercado/ New Market segment that still have all-male boards (92 companies listed at Novo Mercado had all male boards in 2018).

    Main aims

    The executive search group is focused on how executive search consultants (ESCs) can promote emerging and current female directors and develop the systems, practices and processes that enable women to be appointed to boards. Individual members ensure diverse candidates are included on the long and shortlists provided to the chairs of the board and remuneration and nominations committees. The group is also committed to working with chairs and boards on succession planning and developing their network of female board aspirants.

  • Financial Ecosystem Group

    Main aims

    The financial ecosystem group aims at coordinating the approach to gender diversity among
    different stakeholders of the financial industry. Aligned to the targets of the 30% Club - Brazil
    Chapter, we seek to (i) zero the number of “all male boards” on B3 IBrX 100 listed banks by
    2021 and (ii) achieve at least 30% women on boards of B3 IBrX 100 listed banks by 2025. We
    also work with key players in the sector to (i) foster the offering of products and services that
    stimulate gender equality and (ii) to increase the participation of women in the financial
    market.


    We believe the financial community can play an important role in advocating for gender
    diversity in general, and access to c-level and board positions particularly. Rising awareness of
    the importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects when pricing assets is
    on top of the agenda of many financial institutions. In their financial advisory role, they can
    also influence the composition of the boards of corporate clients that are either listed or have
    plans to join the capital markets. They are also to influence the diversity agenda by offering
    products and services that foster gender equality, as well as by adopting practices to increase
    the attraction of female talents to the financial industry.


    Therefore, we also aim at advancing the gender diversity agenda within the financial
    ecosystem by engaging with both commercial and investment banks, private equity and
    venture capital firms, insurance companies, service providers and class entities to (i) explain
    the investment case for more diverse boards; (ii) encourage them to engage with and promote
    the board diversity within their firms and client base (iii) adopt polices & procedures that can
    increase the participation of women in the financial markets and (iv) offer products and
    services that promote gender equality.
