The 2020 Action Plan for Women in Business commits to significantly increasing women’s participation in business in Ireland by 2025.

As Enterprise Ireland announced its 2019 results, the agency also took the opportunity to introduce the 2020 Action Plan for Women in Business.

Following years of initiatives to increase gender diversity in business in Ireland, this latest strategy takes a broader approach and includes plans to increase the number of women in strategic management positions.

As well as attempting to ensure equal representation for half the population, the Action Plan for Women identifies significant gender gaps in business that need bridging.

We spoke to Enterprise Ireland CEO Julie Sinnamon and Nuritas founder Dr Nora Khaldi about these plans and the potential impact for women and business in Ireland.
