The 30% Club launched in the UK in 2010 with a goal of achieving a minimum of 30% women on FTSE-100 boards - currently the figure stand at 26% up from 12.5%. Accelerated progress has been achieved through the leadership of our member Chairs and CEOs.

  • openness to collaborate
  • a concerted and consistent series of actions and programmes, from schoolrooms to boardrooms.
