Ireland

The 30% Club Ireland officially launched in January 2015, with a goal to achieve better gender balance at all levels in leading Irish businesses. The 30% Club believes that gender balance on boards and executive leadership not only encourages better leadership and governance, but further contributes to better all-round board performance, and ultimately increased corporate performance for both companies and their shareholders.  The initiative is complementary to individual company efforts and existing networking groups, adding to these through collaboration and the visible commitment of senior business leaders. Over 200 Irish Chairs and CEOs of leading businesses are supporters of the 30% Club Ireland. These leaders are committed to accelerating gender balance in their organisations through voluntary actions.

The 30% Club is a collaborative business-led effort to make real change in Ireland, aiming towards 30% female representation in senior management by 2020.

The third pillar of the 30% Club Strategy focuses on supporting talent through custom initiatives such as the STEM Teacher Training Intern programme, Executive Education Scholarships, and our Mentoring Programme. See video below.

Latest news:

At the annual CEO and Chairs Conference on 8 February 2019: the Irish Chapter were very privileged to announce that Professor Mary McAleese, former President of Ireland, and Dr Martin McAleese, Chancellor, Dublin City University, have become joint patrons of the 30% Club in Ireland.. Speaking at the conference the former President said;

“Martin and I have always worked as a partnership and supported each other throughout our careers. Becoming patrons of the 30% Club to promote gender diversity is something we are both equally passionate about. Achieving real progress on gender diversity, is equally about men and women working together for change. Gender equality is a rising tide of talent, appreciation of all skill, and opportunity for all.”

Speaking about the announcement, Carol Andrews, 30% Club Ireland Country lead and a Managing Director at BNY Mellon Ireland said;

“The 30% Club Ireland is honoured to have Mary and Martin McAleese become our joint patrons. Their patronage illustrates clearly the standing the 30% Club now has in Irish life and embodies our view that improved gender representation is based on men and women working together for change. Their support is indicative of their combined passion and commitment to supporting diversity as an important means to achieve a better Ireland.”
