We are proud to announce that former Minister and Member of Parliament Eva Kjer Hansen will become Partner and Senior Consultant at Mangaard & Partners.
Mangaard & Partners has for many years focused on
Gender Diversity and Diversity in general in Executive Search. Fortunately,
there are many companies that see the importance of this, but as a society, we still
have a long way to go in this important topic. We need more tangible action.
Today, several investors and companies are looking at Gender Diversity in senior management. We have gone from “nice to have” to seeing Equality and Diversity as a crucial strategic parameter. And this will only become increasingly important in the near future. It is no longer enough only to search and find suitable candidates of both genders and minorities, but we also need to offer sparring and coaching to companies so that they appeal to female and minority candidates. A company must be able to attract the best skills, and if there isn’t Equality in Senior Management then the company has failed in this. Diversity in management will become an important part of ESG reporting going forward, but it will also be crucial towards customers and partners, says Peter Mangaard.
We will with this step initiate several new initiatives in the coming months by involving the companies, and role models within Diversity, even more.
Also, in the further development of effective initiatives we will engage closer with our clients and partners. We will also make use of Eva Kjer Hansen’s political knowledge, experience and network, but with focus on the companies as the main driver for change.
As Minister for Equality and Diversity, Eva Kjer Hansen presented years ago the voluntary charter for women in management and later a charter targeting the recruitment industry diversity focus. Now Eva is looking forward to create tangible results, combining her political background with our hands-on tools to bring the best skills into play and improve the numbers for women in Management and Board positions.
Eva Kjer Hansen has a long and impressive career in politics. She has been a Member of the Danish Parliament for 32 years and a Member of the European Parliament for 5 years. She has been Minister for various areas such as Environment, Food and Agriculture and she has been Minister for Equality and Diversity for over 4 years.
We are delighted to have you on board Eva!
