Labour Ministry says Slovakia is doing well with top female executives

The proportion of women in top managerial posts in Slovakia is at a comparatively good level, Daniela Šulcová from the Labour Ministry's media department told the TASR newswire on August 4. The ministry was responding to an appeal made by members of the European Parliament recently to major companies in the EU that urged enterprises to ensure that a minimum of 30 percent of posts in top management and decision-making boards are occupied by women by 2015.

According to Šulcová, the ministry is keen to see more women as top executives. The ministry also rewards companies that have an equal proportion of men and women in top posts, she added, asserting that research by the European Commission has attested to Slovakia's good efforts and results in this area.
