Appointment of the Managing Director and of the Deputy Managing Director

The EFSI is the most important tool launched by the EU to invest in and prepare for the future. According to the legislation, the Investment Committee has to be gender balanced.

In general, competence should always matter more than political deals.

We call on all the institutions involved, the EIB, the Commission and the committees concerned in the European Parliament to promote women to the top positions accordingly. Europe’s citizens would not understand that an institution looking to the future could be managed according to yesterday’s  practices.
