We aim to increase the women leadership and representation at Czech business. We will focus on state companies, municipal firms and publicly traded companies and the principle they compose their non-executive boards and positions. For those we will prepare Strategic document (Policy Paper) on the governmental level as well as on municipal level. Further on we will help to formulate and assist with adhering to the voluntary targets in private companies for the gender representation in the decision-making positions. To achieve that we will build upon existing Memorandum Diversity 2013+ that has already been signed by 20 Czech major companies. We want to broaden the commitments included in the Memorandum as well as to extend the group of companies that sign it to at least 50. We will support companies in fulfilling their targets by intervening into their internal corporate cultures as well as to the collective indicators for women leadership. This will be done in least 15 companies through the set of internal trainings, information roadshow and asset of other communication instruments. Through the special training module for the top and middle management we want to change the perspective of the current leadership. Through new stakeholder pressure and transfer of know-how (from abroad and cross-companies) we want to support the public expectations towards more women board representation. We will also implement a communication campaign and a set of targeted high profile public events and debates with opinion leaders. Through cooperation with the top media house Economia we will ensure the interest of general public and experts community.
