30% Club & Speakers for Schools Partnership
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.”
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.”
Chairman, Allen & Overy
