What our members say...

“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.”

Douglas Flint
Group Chairman, HSBC Holding

“In my judgment, shareholders benefit when boards have a diversity of skills, background and experience. That’s the way the most effective boards tend to be composed – with both men and women playing a full part.”

David Tyler
Chairman, Sainsbury’s
