Board and Executive Diversity remain high on the agenda, even if at times progress seems slow. Fidelio and CMS are therefore delighted to announce the date of the fourth annual seminar  “Die Frauenquote – An Update on Diversity in German and UK Boardrooms”, once again also supported by the German-British Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
