2012 has seen a step change in the number of women appointed onto FTSE 100 companies following the publication of the Davies Report in February 2011.
The 30% Club is a group of Chairmen voluntarily committed to bringing more women onto UK corporate boards.
In 2010 women made up only 12.5% of the members of the corporate boards of FTSE 100 companies. This was up from 9.4% in 2004. But the rate of increase is too slow.
2010 saw another year of barely perceptible change in the representation of women in leadership positions of UK PLC’s top 100 companies.
