The number of women on the boards of Spain’s 35 largest publicly listed companies saw a modest 2.5 percent increase in 2014, according to the third annual report published on the issue by IESE’s International Center for Work and Family together with Atrevia.
The percentage of women serving on IBEX 35 boards moved from 16.6 percent to 17.3 percent in one year. This is still well below the rest of Europe, where women occupy slightly more than 20 percent of board positions. That said, the trend in Spain is moving in the right direction, albeit slowly. The companies with the highest number of female board members are the construction company FCC, the electric companies Iberdrola and REE and Santander Bank.
