As more women join boards and demonstrate the value they add, the system will become self-perpetuating.

Dame Helena Morrissey
Head of Personal Investing, Legal & General Investment Management and 30% Club founder

The 30% Club launched as a campaign in the UK in 2010 with a goal of achieving a minimum of 30% women on FTSE-100 boards - currently the figure stand at 27% up from 12.5%.

  • supportive public policy that acknowledged that the status quo was unacceptable
  • change driven by those in power
  • openness to collaborate
  • a concerted and consistent series of actions and programmes, from schoolrooms to boardrooms.
