Women are taking their rightful spots in UK boardrooms, with the Female FTSE Report showing that the percentage of women on FTSE 100 boards rose to an all-time high of 33% in 2017 for non-executive positions.
However, the percentage of women holding executive directorships remains low at just under 10% on the FTSE 100 and under 8% of FTSE 250. Only 6% of FTSE 100 companies are run by female CEOs and this rate feels excruciatingly low.
We know that creating a more diverse boardroom is essential, it makes business sense as a diverse leadership can provide more innovative products and services that will actually deliver on consumers’ demand.
Now RE:WOMEN want to gather the experts at a roundtable to celebrate the small successes the industry has seen for women, and also what issues around unconscious bias to women rising to CEO and executive directorship positions remain. We want to discuss how women can achieve the top job and what companies should be doing to make the process possible.
