• The 30% Club launched in the UK in 2010 with a goal of 30% women on FTSE-100 boards by end 2015 - currently 22.2% up from 12.6%. Accelerated progress has been achieved through the leadership of Chairs and CEOs, our members.

    30% Clubs launched in Hong Kong (March 2013) & the US (April 2014), with further Clubs planned in Canada, Ireland, Southern Africa & Australia. 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...

“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

“We have recently increased the number of female directors sitting on our board and have done so not to meet diversity targets, but for the invaluable skills and experience that each brings to the table. We now have four women among our 13 non-executive directors, accounting for a 31% share, and we fully expect to increase this representation further in the coming years.”
