BPW Cyprus to draft a bill concerning women’s participation on the Boards of Public Companies

Meeting with the Speaker of the House of Representative, Mr Demetris Syllouris

A delegation of The Cyprus Federation of Business and Professional Women (BPW Cyprus), led by the Federation’s President, Ms Mary Papadopoulou, met with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Demetris Syllouris, and expressed their intention to submit a bill concerning the participation of women on the boards of public companies.
This decision was taken as a follow-up to the disappointing results of a recent, islandwide survey presented by the Federation, which revealed that women were not adequately represented in leadership positions despite their high level of education.
The meeting of the delegation with the Speaker of the House took place within the framework of the BPW Cyprus delegation’s campaign to inform the Legislature, the Executive Authority, Organized Bodies and other Federations and Organizations.
Efforts to raise awareness of BPW Cyprus, its purpose, initiatives, actions and achievements are currently being reinforced as the Federation celebrates the 20th anniversary of its establishment.
