We are leading a collaborative campaign that has moved beyond the words to identify the actions that will lead to sustainable results.

As more women join boards and demonstrate the value they add, the system will become self-perpetuating.

CEO, Newton Investment Management and 30% Club founder

United Kingdom

The 30% Club launched in the UK in 2010 with a goal of achieving 30% women on FTSE-100 boards by end 2015 - currently figures stand at 25.4% up from 12.5%. Accelerated progress has been achieved through the leadership of chairs and CEOs and our members. In addition to the critical recognition that better gender balance leads to better results, five factors created a replicable formula for success:

  • a measurable goal with a defined timetable
  • political consensus that the status quo was unacceptable
  • change driven by those in power
  • openness to collaborate
  • a concerted and consistent series of actions and programmes, from schoolrooms to boardrooms.

Raising the Bar

By Javier Barrientos, Senior Director, Global Diversity + Inclusion, Biogen

There are very few moments in our lives and careers, where we can play a role in shaping history. The magnitude of challenges facing women in the workplace range in size and scope, but the need for better board room representation is acute. This was validated when we learned in 2013 the disturbing fact that if nothing changes it would take 75 years to reach gender parity on corporate boards.

It helps to work...
