Rise in number of women on FTSE 100 boards
Recent government statistics have revealed that the number of women on the boards of British companies is on the rise, in line with business strategy to increase the number of women at board level.
Women now account for 22.8% of FTSE 100 overall board directorships. This is an increase from 20.7% in March 2014 and 12.5% in 2011 and there are now no all-male boards in the FTSE 100.
There is, however, still some way to go before the FTSE 100 companies reach the goal of 25% female representation by 2015.
