Women on FTSE 100 boards rises to 20%

Women on FTSE 100 boards up to 20% from 12.5%

Women now account for just over a fifth of directors on boards of top companies after a “culture change” in British business over the past three years, according to a new report.

Former trade minister Lord Davies of Abersoch headed a review in 2011 when the number of female board members in FTSE 100 firms was just 12.5%.

He set a target of 25% by 2015, and reported today that the figure stands at 20.7%, showing “real progress”, with more women than ever before in boardrooms of leading companies.
