My new Board Membership: Promoting diversity in Boards

I am very excited and honored to have been elected as a Member of Board at the Board Professionals BPF Finland as of yesterday. Board Professionals is an asssociation  for promoting board work and diversity in top management positions. BPF is the only Finnish member organisation in the international EU level network European Women on Boards, located in Brussels. The mission of Board Professionals is to be a network that promotes professional board work and top management diversity by increasing competitive advantage in companies. This is done by adding diversity and thus bringing new kind of  knowledge, experience, leadership, innovativeness and decision making to companies and organisations. Concretely the strategic goals are to

  • to increase the number of women in companies’ top management and boards 
  • to influence, impact, communicate, discuss and educate on diversity matters in our society 

I am very eager and proud to start working for promoting diversity, a topic very close to my heart.
