The Hampton-Alexander review has published latest figures for women on boards which indicate that “if progress matches the same gains made over the last 3 years, then FTSE 100 companies are on track to meet the 2020 target”.

Whilst the FTSE 250 companies are still behind, the latest figures also indicate that significant progress has been made and that “for the first time, the FTSE 250 could meet the 33% target for women in senior leadership positions if current progress is maintained”.

Figures published reveal:

  • FTSE 100 is at 32.1% up from 30.2%
  • FTSE 250 is at 27.5% up from 24.9%
  • FTSE 350 is at 29.1% up from 26.7%
  • There are now four FTSE 350 all-male boards.

The 2019 Hampton-Alexander report will be published in November following on from the 2018 report.

Further details are available on the BEIS website.
