Developing high potential senior women
Our research into the fastest-growing tech firms revealed over 50% had all-male executive teams, whilst nearly a quarter (22%) had all male Boards. Similar research into FTSE & AIM-listed companies found that women account for less than a quarter (23.5 %) of all leadership positions in the FTSE 350. Women make up 23.5 % of all directors, 15.9 % of executives, but less than one in ten (nine percent) of all Executive Directors. The largest proportion of women are in non-executive positions, accounting for almost one third (30.9 %) of NEDs.
It’s not enough to simply chastise companies for not having enough senior women, we need to actively encourage and support women into senior positions.
Over the course of 7 months, The Inclusive Boards Women in Executive Leadership Programme will bring together senior women leaders from across sectors to support those who are looking to move to higher and or board positions.
