The event was organised in conjunction with the Norwegian Embassy and explored how Ireland can increase women's representation on private company boards, learning from Norway’s experience with gender quotas. Speakers included business lawyer, Liv Monica Stubholt, a partner with one of Norway's top law firms, Anne O’ Leary, CEO of Vodafone in Ireland; Margaret Ward, CEO of Clear Ink and Board member of RTÉ; Norwegian Ambassador, Else Berit Eikeland and Director of the National Women's Council of Ireland, Orla O'Connor.
