The FACC "Women in Business" Committee has hosted several Panel Discussions and Workshops to address France's current Copé-Zimmermann Law, which was voted in 2011 and requires that certain companies include 20% of women on their Boards of Directors beginning in 2014 and 40% of women beginning in 2017.
On June 3rd, FACC Members and guests were invited to attend follow-up Panel that provided perspectives on this important law specifically from the Boardroom. Themes included the presence of women on Nominating and Executive Committees; the impact of a Diversified Board (improved growth, minimization of risk); and Mandates accumulation.
Panelists included Floriane de Saint Pierre, Founder & CEO, Floriane de Saint Pierre & Associés and Founder, Ethics & Boards; Yseulys Costes, Co-Founder, Chair & CEO, Numberly - 1000mercis Group and Board Member of Kering, Seb and Vivendi; and Marie Landel, Expert Comptable, Founder, Marie Landel & Associates and Board Member of Cellnovo and Txcell.
The event was graciously hosted by member firm Baker & McKenzie.
