The 30% Club is launching in Poland today. Its goal is to increase the representation of women to at least 30% of management and supervisory boards combined in 140 of the largest Polish listed companies by 2030.

The campaign also has an intermediate goal of 20% female participation in the governing bodies of WIG20, mWIG40 and sWIG80 companies by 2025 and the absence of all-male boards among those companies. At the end of 2020, the share of women on boards of those companies was only 15.5%.

NEW: Companies with a higher share on women on boards benefit from a higher margin and lower risk

The share of women on boards of 140 Polish listed companies from the WIG20, mWIG40 and sWIG80 indices was a mere 13.8% at the end of 2019. Additionally, progress to rectify this imbalance has been slow, with an increase of only 3.8pp observed over the last decade. Firms with a higher representation of women on boards saw competitive advantages in terms of higher net margins and lower share price volatility. This data was drawn from “Women on boards and company performance”, a report published by CFA Society Poland. The largest companies from the WIG20 index were the most diversified in terms of gender, conversely the smallest companies from the sWIG80 index were the least diversified.
