• The 30% Club launched in the UK in 2010 with a goal of 30% women on FTSE-100 boards by end 2015 - currently 23% 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...

“In terms of board composition the principle of gender diversity makes enormous sense for both companies and their shareholders. Boards should better reflect a company’s key stakeholders, in particular its customers and colleagues. Having an aspiration of 30% female talent at the top table is to be both welcomed and encouraged.”

Douglas Ferrans
former Chairman, Investment Management Association

“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.”
