President’s Message

Especially in the last 10 years, many researches in Europe and the United States proved that the performance of the high number of women in the board of directors is higher in almost all areas. On the other hand, research results such as the high level of ethical reputation, low level of corruption, taking more affordable risks at the boards where women are located, supports the reasons for this work. However it doesn't make sense to talk about these issues. It is not necessary to look for reason for adequate female representation. In a world where half of the population and talent are women, if there are not enough women on boards; this does not mean there are no women eligible for this role, shows that the system is not working well and that women are stucked in the process. Women alone cannot solve this problem created by the system, the system must solve itself. Therefore, Women on Board Association Turkey (WBAT) is a platform that prepares strong candidates for boards, and on the other hand, it is growing day by day as a powerful organization that plays an active role in the solution of this problem, brings together the stakeholders for the effective operation of the system and opens the solutions for dialogue.
