Executive Summary

The Women on Boards: Quality through Diversity consultation ran between 30 April and 4 July 2014. It focused on how, if Scotland had the power to introduce gender diversity quotas, this would work in practice. The consultation received 69 responses from a range of organisations and sectors, including public bodies, equality organisations as well as individual members of the public. Amongst those who responded there were mixed views on the proposals put forward in the consultation paper, however there was a general understanding and sympathy with the need to accelerate the pace of progress of increasing gender equality on boards.
