Styrelsekraft - Women on boards

Styrelsekraft was instituted by the Swedish government in 2008 with the purpose of over five years to promote sustainable growth by increasing the proportion of women on Swedish boards.

Between the years 2009 and 2014, 740 women participated in the Styrelsekraft programme.
Participants, with leadership positions in business or company owners (partners or MD), applied in big competition to the programme. Each participant had a personal board mentor, passed board training and received a professional board network with other participants. In this way, the women who participated in Styrelsekraft are quality assured board members.
