Gender target figure

Target Figure for Women in the Board of Directors of Genmab A/S

At the General Meeting of Genmab A/S, the Board of Directors proposes election of the most suitable candidates based on, amongst other criteria, the skill set requirements for board of directors of biotech companies. In connection with the proposals for election, the Board of Directors takes into consideration the opportunity to propose election of candidates that may secure gender equality to the Board of Directors on the long term.

In March 2017, Genmab achieved its target figure for women in the Board of Directors according to which it was the aim of the Board of Directors that the proportion of female board members elected by the General Meeting was increased to at least 25%. Considering the Board of Directors’ current composition, which constitutes equitable gender representation cf. guidelines from the Danish Business Authority, it is the aim of the Board of Directors to maintain an equitable gender representation in the Board of Directors.

The target figure may be amended by the Board of Directors and should be interpreted in accordance with applicable equal rights and anti-discrimination legislation in Denmark, in force from time to time.
