​​The number of women on boards has risen 50% from 682 to 1,026 in five years. The figures were released by the government-backed Hampton-Alexander Review, which was launched in 2016 to encourage UK-listed companies to appoint more senior women. - BBC News

Very encouraging news that the number of women on boards has increased 50% in five years, largely due to the work of the 30% Club who set a goal of gaining 30% representation of all women on boards and c-suites globally underpinned by three strategic pillars:

  • To Activate Chairs and CEO's as members of the 30% Club.

  • Influence those with power to drive change.

  • Enable future women leaders.

The success of the 30% Club demonstrates what can be achieved and is now needed for all areas of diversity, and in particular, ethnicity. All research shows that organizations with ethnically diverse leadership teams outperform their competitors by 35%, so the business case is clear.

No time to delay #30%club #diversity
