The Female Board Pool
Boardroom diversity has a positive impact on the sustainable development of companies and organisations. The Sofia Foundation supports the Female Board Pool, an initiative launched by the IFPM Center for Corporate Governance at the top-ranked University of St. Gallen/Switzerland in 2005. The Female Board Pool operates in Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland, in addition to being a founding partner of the Global-Board-Ready-Women initiative. Its aim: promoting qualified women of diverse educational and professional backgrounds to the Boards of companies, including SMEs and family-owned businesses, public and semi-public organisations, and non-profit organisations.
The Belgium branch of the Female Board Pool is supported by ASTIA, an global non-profit promoting high-growth women-led start-ups worldwide, and by PWI, the Brussels Chapter of PWN Global, an international network of seasoned women professionals. It is run by Claudia Ritter, Managing Director of Cleverland and President of the Sofia Foundation. Claudia is also a member of the Female Board Pool Executive Body.
