CIPS bucks UK trend in gender equality in the boardroom

CIPS 3 March 2011

UK Government report states that at current rate of change, gender balance in the boardroom will take another 70 years. CIPS is there already.

A new report from the UK Government is recommending that companies listed in the FTSE 100 should aim for women to make up 25% of their boardrooms by 2015.

The CIPS board currently has a 50/50 split between men and women, with the percentage rising to 55% female representation in the senior management team. CIPS membership is lagging behind with female members making up 44% of the total, but rising year on year.

Currently, only 12.5% of companies employ female board members, and the report suggests that changes need to be made to encourage the most gifted and talented women into business. The top performing organisations have a strong female representation at the highest level according to Lord Davies of Abersoch, the author of the report.
