Gender Composition in Management

In 2013, the Board of Trustees adopted a policy for the gender composition in management positions in Egmont and agreed on a quantitative target for women on Egmont Boards. 

The policy is a Group policy, meaning that both policy and targets are applicable to those of Egmont’s Danish companies that are required according to Danish law to set such targets and have a policy. The companies are: Egmont International Holding A/S, Egmont Publishing Magasiner A/S, Lindhardt & Ringhof A/S, Nordisk Film A/S, Nordisk Film Distribution A/S, Nordisk Film Biografer A/S, GoGift A/S and Egmont Administration A/S.

In all of these companies except Egmont International Holding A/S and Nordisk Film Biografer A/S, the target has been met as one - out of three - board members elected by the general meeting is a woman. In Nordisk Film Biografer A/S all three board members elected by the general meeting are men. In Egmont International Holding A/S all board members elected by the general meeting are men.

 

Egmonts Policy on Gender Composition in Management

  • Egmont does not discriminate based on gender, age and handicap, ethnic or religious background
  • Egmont wants to always employ the best-qualified person, irrespective of  gender
  • Egmont aims to have a diverse set of competencies. Diversity is not a matter of gender only, but can also include educational background, functional experience, age, cultural background, etc.
  • When recruiting or promoting people, Egmont demands that both male and female candidates are identified

 

Egmont’s Target for the Underrepresented Gender

 Egmont has the following target for the underrepresented gender on the Board of Trustees:

  • Egmont aims to have one female member elected to the Board of Trustees no later than 2018
  • According to the Charter of the Egmont Foundation, election to the Board of Trustees takes place when a member’s election period expires
  • Egmont uses external help to identify candidates to the Board of Trustees of Egmont Foundation. Both male and female candidates are identified.

The target mentioned above is also valid for those of Egmont’s Danish companies that are required under Danish law to set such target.
