• The 30% Club launched in the UK in 2010 with a goal of 30% women on FTSE-100 boards by end 2015 - currently 23.5% up from 12.6%. Accelerated progress has been achieved through the leadership of Chairs and CEOs, our members.

    30% Clubs launched in 2013 in Hong Kong and in 2014 in the US, Ireland and Southern Africa, with further Clubs planned in Canada, Australia & Italy. The 30% Club approach - collaborative, concerted business-led efforts - can help accelerate progress towards better gender balance at all levels of organisations.

What our members say...

“As a Chairman I’ve been involved for some years in mentoring talented women preparing for a non-executive director role and also appointing women to match the skill sets needed for the boards I chair.  So I want to continue to champion talented women on UK boards.”

Sir John Parker
Chairman, Anglo American

“Mao Tse-Tung once said: ‘Women hold up half the sky’, an observation at odds with the reality of UK business where the upper echelons – at board and partner level – still tend to be heavily dominated by men. It’s time to crack this nut. The 30% Club is designed to bring a better balance to boards and partnerships. Essential for any business that wants to remain competitive in the future, in my view.”

David Morley
Chairman, Allen & Overy
