Women on the board

NORAH Casey (right) heads a discussion about the number of women on boards at the Dublin branch of the European Professional Women's Network event.

The former Dragons' Den star and owner of Harmonia will join Danuta Gray, former CEO of Telefonica O2; Vivienne Jupp, chair of Accenture and of CIE; CEO of Boardmatch.ie Chris White; and Maura Moore, founder of Aventura Venture Partners.

The EU average for female representation on boards stands at 15.8pc, but Ireland lags way behind with only 9pc.
