Why women have to fight for positions on boards and what will Macron face in France‪?‬ Beyond the Byline

    • Politics

This week in our Beyond the Byline podcast we are focusing on how companies are implementing initiatives to boost gender equality on corporate boards and in decision-making positions. Listen to our special guest Hedwige Nuyens, chair of European Women on Boards, explain why diversity in decision-making positions is so important, together with EURACTIV’s Silvia Ellena who has been covering the story.

We are also taking a look at the aftermath of the French elections: asking why Western leaders were relieved by Macron’s win, what the country's future with Russia might hold, and what is facing the French president when it comes to national politics. To hear more, I spoke with Davide Basso, who reports directly from Paris for EURACTIV.
