Professional and executive candidate database for women
"Kvinnebasen" was established in 1999 and is run by NAV, The Norwegian
Employment and Welfare
Service. The database aims at increasing the number of women in board of
directors and in top positions, both in the private and the public
The main goals of kvinnebasen are:
- To facilitate recruiters who look for top women candidates
- To increase the number of women both in board of directors and in executive positions in private and public sectors
- To make women’s professional competence more visible
In addition the database can be used by the media for interviews and
statements on professional matters, by professional and public
organisations, as speakers and lecturers.
Today more than 3500 women are registered with their competence profile
in the database. 81% of the registered candidates have management
experience and 62% have served on a board of directors. In general the
women listed in Kvinnebasen have a higher education, and working- and
other experience from a wide range of fields. There is a great diversity
in age, type of experience and education among the candidates.
Kvinnebasen is an open database, i.e. there are no restrictions on who
can enter the site and look up the listed candidates. Recruiters may
chose to search for core competence, type of education, city, name and
all other registered information.
