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 150 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.

    Expanded 30% Club Ireland 2018 Executive Education Scholarship Programme

     -  three scholarships specifically aimed at promoting women’s leadership in the important STEM area – DCU Masters in Computing or Engineering, NCI Masters in School of Computing and NUIG MSc in Technology Management

    -  two scholarships aimed particularly at healthcare and related sectors  - RCSI Masters in Leadership and RCSI Diploma in Clinical Leadership.

    University College Dublin (UCD) College of Social Sciences and Law Graduate School is proud to partner with the 30% Club to support their goal to develop more high potential women in leadership. To support the initiative, we are delighted to award a full tuition fee scholarship (€6,885) for a female candidate to join the full-Time Master in Public Policy programme. The Master of Public Policy is highly valued by prospective employers and gives candidates competitive advantage in the job market by providing conceptual, analytical and research skills necessary to succeed in the public and non-profit sector.  Public policy making has become more challenging in recent years in the context of the increasing complexity of clients’ needs, growing expectations regarding appropriate service quality and diminishing public spending in many countries. The Master of Public Policy is specifically designed to provide candidates with the knowledge and skills to meet these challenges. The programme examines the socio-economic changes and political issues which influence policy making, the challenges associated with effective regulation and administration of public services and ensuring that policy decisions are evidence based. Commencing September 2018, the closing date for applications is 30th June 2018.

    Main aims

    The IMI/30% Club Cross Company Mentoring Scheme for 2016 has received really positive feedback from participating mentees and mentors so we are delighted to announce that the window for registration is officially open for this year’s programme from today until 17th February.  

    Since late 2015, 28 organisations have participated in this programme, with 112 leaders across these organisations greatly benefiting from the scheme and furthering enhancing their careers. Mentors may be female or male and at least 50% of the mentees from each company must be female.

    The link here will bring you to a dedicated page with a detailed information pack which outlines the scheme in detail and where you can register your interest and  the team at the IMI will follow up with a call.  

    We invite you to get involved in this high value programme!  Please do take note that the closing date for initial registration is 17 February - the full schedule of dates and cost are in the information pack.

  • Agrifood Sector

    Main aims

    The Agrifood Diversity & Inclusion Forum was established in 2017 to promote diversity and inclusion in the Irish food and drink sector. Attracting, retaining and developing talent is one of the largest risks facing the food & drinks sector. This initiative aims to secure commercial success through the recognition that attracting the best talent depends on making current and future workers feel they are valued and that their contribution is recognised. The Forum is supported by Bord Bia and Aon and membership is made up of business leaders from the Irish food and drinks sector.

  • Financial Services

    Main aims

    Established in 2016, the Financial Services Sub Committee of the 30% Club in Ireland has a clear purpose:

    "To be a focused catalyst for meaningful change within the financial services industry, where the opportunity to develop and capitalise on a diverse talent pool can provide real positive commercial and competitive benefit to the sector primarily and ultimately to the Irish Economy and Irish Society."

    To drive this purpose, in January 2017, the Sub Committee launched two key parallel initiatives:

    1. Groundbreaking research providing a benchmark for female representation in Financial Services in Ireland - "Making the Change Count". Please click for link to report.

    2. A toolkit of tips and resources to drive the actions which organisations can take to address the challenges highlighted in the report. Please click for link to toolkit. (available to supporters only).

    The 30% club is running its first event targeted at senior male executives. One of the rationales for this is that so many diversity/ inclusion events are attended by women not men and we need to rebalance this.  

    Given the evidence on how gender diverse companies can improve people engagement, access to talent, an ability to innovate and most importantly profitability, we are inviting senior male executives to this workshop to help support them in addressing change throughout their organisations. In this workshop, participants will engage with other senior leaders to explore the topic of diversity in their own organisations.

    Event Information:

    Date & Time:  April 5th, 8am - 1pm plus an optional buffet lunch

    Venue: Alexander Hotel, Aston Suite 1+2, Dublin

    Facilitators: Peter Cosgrove & Sandra Healy

    Price: Free to attend but compulsory to register

    Audience: Aimed at C-suite or Director level participants. 

    This event is for 30% club members and is invite only, if you would like to register interest please email peter.cosgrove@cpl.ie
