Nine women appointed to the IRF Board of Directors

Nine women appointed to the IRF Board of Directors

At its annual meeting held on 20th April, the IRF General Assembly has appointed nine women to the IRF Board of Directors.

In order to increase diversity – and in particular gender diversity – from now on each company/organisation being represented in the Board will have to nominate at least a female representative. A bold step in the history of the Federation and in the sector.

The IRF extends its warm welcome to these nine professionals who have already been actively involved in the Federation over the past years.
