The following graphs show the breakdown of the four Colleges of Commissioners since 2004, by age and gender, based on the situation at the beginning of each Commission’s term. While the proportion of women in the College has fluctuated during this period, it has increased from 20.0 % in 2004 to 44.4 % at the start of the von der Leyen Commission in 2019. Following the appointment of Mairead McGuinness to the Commission in October 2020, replacing Phil Hogan, the College now has 13 women (48.1 %) and 14 men.
