The Executive Board of the European Central Bank (ECB) has decided to introduce gender targets with the aim of doubling the share of women in management.
By end of 2019, 35% of middle management positions (Heads of Division, Deputy Heads of Division, Heads of Section, Senior Advisers and Advisers) and 28% of senior management positions (Directors General, Deputy Directors General, Directors and Principal Advisers) should be held by women.
The share of women in middle management positions at present is 17%, while women hold 14% of senior management positions. In order to reach the gender targets, the ECB is implementing a gender diversity action plan.
