THE CAMPAIGN 
The 30% Club campaign was set up by Dame Helena Morrissey in 2010 with the aim of achieving a minimum of 30% female representation on FTSE 100 boards. As of 2016, we extended the scope of this original target to a minimum of 30% women on FTSE 350 boards by 2020. The original target was reached in September 2018 and the extended target was reached in September 2019, with accelerated progress being achieved thanks to the leadership of our Chair and CEO members. 

Whilst we celebrate reaching these boardroom milestones, both our board targets were minimum objectives and there is still much work to do to achieve better gender balance at the top of businesses – 160 companies have still not reached 30% women on their boards and there are still two all-male boards in the FTSE 350 (down from 151 in 2010).

Now under Brenda Trenowden CBE and Ann Cairns’ leadership as 30% Club Global Co-Chairs, our energies are concentrated on supporting more women into senior management roles and taking action to reach our 2020 pipeline goal for every FTSE 100 company to have 30% of its senior management roles held by women.

The 30% Club believes that companies with a good balance of men and women in senior roles have better insights into their customers and market opportunities, make better decision, and perform better financially. For further detail on the campaign see booklet and video clip below.

 

OUR TARGETS

  • a minimum of 30% women on FTSE 100 boards by 2015 | Target reached September 2018 (percentage currently stands at 32.3%*, up from 12.5% when we launched the campaign in 2010)
  • a minimum of 30% women on FTSE 350 boards by 2020 | Target reached September 2019 (percentage currently stands at 30.4%*, up from 23% when we set the target in 2016)
  • a minimum of 30% women at senior management level of FTSE 100 companies by 2020 | Currently women make up 27%** at FTSE 100 ExCo + direct report levels.

In October 2018 the 30% Club advanced its global mission to foster gender balance at all levels of organisations by joining forces with Brazil’s Call For Action Movement (CFAM). CFAM, a local business-led initiative, was launched in 2017 in response to an annual survey conducted by Enlight on the level of female representation on Brazilian Boards. The 2017 survey report highlighted a lack of progress over the prior three years and recognised the importance of setting aspirational voluntary goals to drive progress.

The movement started as a conversation and soon became a campaign to engage key stakeholders in deeper discussions about the importance of gender diversity and broader diversity on boards, recommending a voluntary business-led approach to address the issue.

The 30% Club Chapter Brazil is inviting companies to set the following aspirational targets:

  • zero all male boards on B3 new market segment companies by 2020 (from 65% all male boards in 2018)
  • 30% women on boards of B3 IBrX 100 listed companies by 2025


2019 will see a focus on intensifying engagement with Chairs and CEOs encouraging those New Market Segment companies with all-male boards to join the campaign and to appoint at least one female director each by 2020. The over-arching strategy is to act as a public voice for gender balance on boards and leadership teams by working collaboratively with other bodies to spread awareness, grow the pipeline and stimulate demand primary to increase female Board directors in Brazil.

MEMBERSHIP


Brazil membership is primarily targeted at Chairs, Board Members and CEOs of Novo Mercado listed companies and IBrX 100 companies at B3. Membership is free. For further information please email: Anna Maria Guimarães - aguimaraes@30percentclub.or or ​Olivia Ferreira - oferreira@30percentclub.org

Business Engage launched 30% Club East Africa on 24 October in Nairobi. Since the launch event, interest has been received from a number of other corporates and the next event is being planned for June 2019.

A local team is being developed to assist in driving the initiative in East Africa.

The BoardWalk and LeadersWalk events will be rolled out in East Africa as well.

On March 22, 2017 Borsa Istanbul (BIST) hosted the launch of the 30% Club’s Turkey Chapter as a business led campaign, aimed at improving corporate boards’ gender diversity. The founding members of the 30% Club Turkey represent most of Turkey’s powerful business groups that collectively dominate the stock market.

The 30% Club in Turkey is a spin off from the Independent Women Directors Project, that was initated by Sabancı University’s Corporate Governance Forum when the Capital Markets Board of Turkey amended its Corporate Governance Guidelines in 2012, recommending that companies set a target level of no less than 25% women on their boards. The Forum, which maintains a database of female talent and tracks improvement in BIST boards’ gender diversity, facilitates and coordinates the 30% Club Turkey campaign.

The Steering Commitee of the 30% Club Turkey has the following targets:

  • 30% participation of women in the boards of BIST Star Market and Main Market companies by 2025 (representing an increase of 109% from 14.3% in 2016)
  • 30% women in the top executive team (representing an increase of 100% from 15% in 2016)
  • Zero all male boards in BIST 100 compaines by 2025 (targeting 38 companies with all male boards as of 2016) ,

These targets corresponds to approximately a three-fold increase in the number of professional women on corporate boards from the current level considering that half of the women sitting on corparate boards today are members of controlling shareholder families.

The 30% Club GCC is a regional volunteer effort of multi-sector leaders working together towards better representation of women on boards and in senior level positions.  We work in collaboration to accelerate pace of change and support the growth of a healthy pipeline of talented and capable women that are ready to serve in senior positions across various sectors.

We strongly believe that business-led change is the right way forward; and as such, we support women to realize their potential through mentorship, executive education, research, and we also advocate good governance to support women to serve on boards.

The 30% Club GCC chapter was established in 2015.

The 30% Club Italy was launched on October 26th 2015 as a business-led, not-for-profit initiative aimed at reaching at least a 30% participation of women in leadership (executive positions and boards) by 2020.

The main challenge is increasing women's participation in organizational leadership (executive and top-middle levels) particularly in large companies. Currently, women CEOs are 4% in companies above 200 ML turnover (10% in companies below 50 ML); women executives are less than 10% and women in middle-top management positions (dirigenti) are approximately 16%. Women in boards of stock-listed and government participated companies are approaching 30% (currrently 28%) due to gender quotas introduced by law in 2011.

The primary focus of the 30% Club in Italy will be to grow women’s participation in executive positions (two levels below CEO). Augmenting presence at this level will help create a women CEO pipeline; help drive women’s participation beyond the functional areas where they have traditionally been confined and favor cooptation of women from lower ranks of management and inspire them.

A secondary focus will be on board presence.  We wish to increase women participation in boards not affected by the law, to improve the level of women’s participation in boards and to ensure that, when the law expires, women’s presence will not regress.

Recognizing Canada’s distinct corporate governance framework, the aim of the 30% Club Canada is to include both board Chairs and CEOs to achieve better gender balance at board level, as well at senior management levels. In order to achieve this, we are working closely with Catalyst and their important Catalyst Accord initiative. We do not believe mandatory quotas are the right approach. Instead, we are building a strong foundation of business leaders who are committed to meaningful, sustainable gender balance in business leadership. Our name comes from an aspirational goal that we believe can be achieved in Canada through focused efforts by the business community. As in all business ventures, ‘what gets measured gets managed’ – a numeric goal provides real impetus for change, and our goal is for 30% of board seats and C-Suites to be held by women by 2022.

The 30% Club Canada:

  • Enlists support from corporations listed on the S&P/TSX
  • Has no membership fees
  • Has no quotas
  • Allows you to signal your commitment as an industry leader to gender balanced leadership

WELCOME to The 30% Club Malaysia Chapter!

The 30% Club started as a campaign in the UK in 2010 with a goal of achieving a minimum of 30% women on FTSE-100 boards.  The 30% Club was launched in Malaysia on 8th May 2015 by the Prime Minister attended by Chairmen, CEOs, and business leaders who are committed to bringing more women onto Malaysian corporate boards.

The purpose of the 30% Club is to:

• inspire debate and discussion at corporate leadership and board levels on gender diversity and its benefits to business
• assist corporate boards in their engagement of qualified, board-ready women
• support initiatives to build a pipeline of women in executive and non-executive roles

The 30% Club is not a call for a quota – instead the 30% Club supports sustainable business-led voluntary change to improve the current gender imbalance on Malaysian corporate boards.

Please be welcomed to contact the Secretariat at email : 30percentclubmalaysia@gmail.com

• If you are interested in engaging qualified women onto your Boards, or
• If you wish to offer yourself as volunteer in The 30% Club.

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.

Supporting Balance for Better Business – May 2019

The Balance for Better Business group has launched its review and has formally presented findings and recommendations to Minister David Stanton T.D., Minister of State for Equality, Immigration and Integration, acting on behalf of the Taoiseach and the Irish Government.  The review confirms the absence of gender balance at board level in Irish listed companies and has set out requirements for target-based progress across a prescribed delivery timeline.

The 30% Club has long been campaigning for such measures, evidenced in the appointment of 30% Club founders Gary Kennedy and Brid Horan as co-chairs of the review, and today we welcome the outputs and the opportunities this review brings.  In particular, we are very pleased that the review has:

 - Recognised the importance of organisations being accountable for their own progress, in the recommendation for targets rather than prescribed quotas

 - Focused on balance at board level in this first report, but recognised the importance of balance at c-suite for diversity of thought and performance, together with the c-suite providing an important talent pipeline for CEO and Board positions. Targets for C-suite level will be the focus of later reports.

 - Set more immediate targets for organisations that already have the resources to make progress, and allows for lead-in times for those that need to build capacity

 - Outlined the need for practical tools and supports and called out groups such as the 30% Club and initiatives like our Board and Executive Resourcing Code which we launched in April, as useful for progress

The 30% Club will be continuing to work with members as they put plans in place to deliver on the review recommendations.

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.

30% Club HK and The Women’s Foundation release video to highlight the lack of gender diversity on Hong Kong Boards

HONG KONG, November 6, 2018 The low number of women on company boards remains a pressing issue in Hong Kong. Along with the 30% Club HK, The Women’s Foundation have been long time advocates for more diverse corporate boards. Echoing Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s strong call on all listed companies to appoint more women on their boards in her annual policy speech last month, we have taken a fresh approach to address the issue - presenting a light-hearted video “Flipping the Script”, available in both Cantonese and English. With this video, we aim to emphasise the fact that women are underrepresented in Hong Kong boardrooms, highlighting the urgent need for greater public awareness around increasing gender diversity on boards.

 

Please click here for a copy of the full Press Release


The 30% Club Hong Kong launched in March 2013 and is working to bring more women onto Hong Kong corporate boards by:

  • raising awareness among chairs and business leaders of the benefits of gender diversity;
  • inspiring debate and discussion;
  • supporting initiatives to build the pipeline of women in executive and non-executive roles.


The 30% Club Hong Kong recognizes that gender diversity is good for the overall effectiveness of the boardroom – and therefore is good for business. Besides benefiting companies, greater board diversity will also benefit Hong Kong. As a global financial centre with an abundant talent pool of highly qualified women, we believe Hong Kong is well positioned to become a leader in board diversity.

The 30% Club Australia launched in May 2015 with the primary objective of campaigning for 30 per cent women on ASX 200 boards by the end 2018. Nicola Wakefield-Evans is the Country Lead and is working closely with the Steering Committee, our Ambassador Chairs and a number of Working Groups and valued supporters from around the country in promoting the benefits of diversity at all levels of business. In March 2019 the 30% Club announced a new objective for 30 per cent women on ASX 300 boards by the end of 2021. The 30% Club will continue to focus on the boards of ASX 200 companies that have not reached the 30 per cent target.

    • Hold On - we implement policies and practices to improve retention levels of women leaders
    The key events in our calendar include; Inspiring Automotive Women Day - a reach out campaign to secondary schools to inspire female students to consider careers within the Automotive sector; Inspiring Automotive Women Awards - a great opportunity to celebrate females from within our industry; and our annual conference for members featuring guest speakers.

  • Investors

    Main aims

    The 30% Club Investor Group was established in 2011. Its purpose is to:

    • co-ordinate the investment community's approach to diversity, in particular to explain the investment case for more diverse boards and senior management teams;
    • exercise our ownership rights,  including voting and engagement, to effect change on company boards and within senior management teams;
    • encourage all investors to engage on the issue of diversity with chairs of boards and senior management teams.  

     As asset owners and asset managers we are responsible for the stewardship of the investments we make on behalf of our members and clients. Part of that responsibility includes the assessment of the boards and senior management teams of our investee companies.

    We believe boards that genuinely embrace cognitive diversity, as manifested through appropriate gender representation and a broad spectrum of skills and experience, are more likely to achieve better outcomes for investors. There is increasing research to support this hypothesis. 

    Statement of Intent
    In October 2016, the 30% Club UK Investor Group published a Statement of Intent to signal the collective voice of the 30% Club Investor Group to companies and the wider marketplace, and to demonstrate the ways in which members will use their ownership rights and undertake stewardship to encourage progress on gender diversity. The Statement of Intent includes supporting the following targets by 2020:

    • 30% women on FTSE350 boards
    • 30% women at senior management level of FTSE100 companies

    We call on companies to take fast and considered action to secure this ambition.

    We support the brief of the Hampton-Alexander Review (following on from the review by Lord Davies on women on boards of UK listed companies) to focus on "improving female representation in leadership positions of British business, broadening the ambition to the entire FTSE 350 and raising the target to 33% of women on boards by 2020.

    Further detail on the work of the Group and its members can be found here. Please also see our Investor toolkit for engaging boards on diversity which is provided to help investors, and those representing them, more effectively engage with boards of directors on this important issue.

  • Professional Services Firms

    Main aims

    The Professional Services Firms’ Initiative is a group of 22 firms who work together to consider ways in which we can support efforts towards increasing gender balance in law firms, accountancy and consultancy. Set up in 2012, in partnership with McKinsey & Co, the group published a study on gender balance at senior levels in these firms. The study revealed that the lower representation of women at senior levels was not driven by disproportionate attrition rates but rather the rate of promotion. The report was a call to action and the group subsequently has focussed on three key areas of sponsorship, work allocation and agile working to develop a common perspective on these issues and provide practical guidance to firms. More recently, the group continues to expand its areas of focus, looking at the female Millenial perspective on the three focus areas and more broadly their experience of professional services firms. Please see this short film about the about the PSF initiative:

    The world is run by those with the most money and power, who for centuries have
    shaped hierarchies, cultural norms and the structure of how people live and work.
    Today, despite significant efforts from government and business to shift a greater
    share of money and power to women, this imbalance persists. The number of
    women at the top of FTSE 350 and S&P 500 companies has dropped in the last
    year, while the gender pay gap, investment gap and pensions gap all remain.
    Enforced transparency and societal pressure has brought hidden power inequalities
    to light and helped drive progress, but to achieve further meaningful change,
    business and policy leaders must show commitment to more action.The need for
    gender equality is widely accepted, yet progress on achieving this in
    the workplace is in danger of grinding to a halt.

    • Female empowerment through the eyes of men - how we can make the finance industry better for women. Which initiatives in the UK and beyond have worked and which haven’t?

    ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
    In support of The Telegraph’s major campaign, Women Mean Business; and in honour of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage,
    The Telegraph is hosting a grand finale event. They will be bringing the campaign to an audience of 300+, through a number of high
    profile keynote speakers, panels and on-stage interviews.

    The Women Mean Business Campaign launched in March 2018 with the signing of an open letter from 200 female founders and
    inspirational leaders. This was sent to the Government to address the lack of funding given to female founders (only 9% of VC
    funding).

    The live event, taking place in London in October, will see female founders of established startups, corporate c-suite executives and
    government representatives convene to address the lack of funding for female entrepreneurs. The event will also discuss the gender
    pay gap, equal opportunities and celebrate women in business through live debates and panels.

    In October 2017 The Treasury Committee launched a new inquiry into Women in Finance focusing on HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter and the progress it has made. The Committee will seek to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services industry and will examine the value to financial firms of having greater gender imbalance. It will also scrutinize the impact of Government and financial regulators as role models for good gender diversity practices.

    This high-profile forum builds on the success of the previous editions of the Women in Business and the Women in Finance summits, which both attracted 250+ senior delegates from across business, government and the regulatory community, both here and overseas.

    The conference will examine the role of the Government and financial regulators in addressing the imbalance of seniority between genders and determine what can be done to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services sector.

    It will also review the progress made since the launch of the HM Treasury’s Charter and assess the impact the Charter has had on signatory companies, the benefits they are realising and the challenges the firms face in meeting their Charter commitments.

    Other topics include:

    • What is the UK Government’s strategy for ensuring that the potential of women in the boardroom and in the senior management of the financial services industry is being realised?
    • Enhancing female leadership, empowering productivity and harnessing the talents of women in financial services
    • Promoting “The Power of Equality” and moving towards closing “three Gs” – the participation gap, the remuneration gap and advancement gap
    • Gender Pay Regulations – what are the reports showing and what impact will they have on the financial services sector?
    • Aligning your passion with skill – what are the key components to a successful career in the financial services industry? Insights from successful women in the financial services world

    GENDER BALANCE INDEX
    The annual Gender Balance Index tracks the presence of men and women in senior positions of public financial institutions globally, weighted by seniority.

    The 2017 report focused on central banks, showing that the sector is highly unbalanced when it comes to gender, with the disequilibrium becoming worse. The value of the overall index, which aggregates the performance of individual institutions weighted by their country's share of the global economy, stood at 30.6% in 2017 – a far cry from the 100% that would suggest a perfectly gender-balanced picture. 

    The 2018 edition of the Gender Balance Index expands the analysis to sovereign funds and public pension funds. We invite you to attend the launch of the 2018 findings which will be presented in both London and Singapore. Speakers include: Catherine Bradley, board member at the UK Financial Conduct Authority; Marc-Olivier Strauss-Kahn, director general of economics and international relations, Banque de France; Jorgovanka Tabaković, governor, National Bank of Serbia; and Anna Trzecińska, deputy president of Narodowy Bank Polski.

    The Financial Times & 30% Club invite you to join us for the next Women at the Top Summit - Transforming Leadership

    The 30% Club is delighted to announce that we will be partnering with the FT Women at the Top summit which returns in September to tackle one of the most complex challenges we face today: how to fix the gender imbalance in the top ranks of business in Britain and beyond.

    The composition of top UK management remains stubbornly uniform despite significant progress to make organisations more diverse and inclusive. The costs to companies and the economy of male dominated leadership are well documented. Yet many employers are still inadvertently turning away future leaders – male and female – by continuing business as usual.

    Join us to look at how leadership could be transformed over the next decade as the impact of policy changes becomes clear. Hear practical examples and insights from the most forward thinking business leaders, academics and policy makers tackling the gender imbalance and take part in action-focused debate to discover how you can effect change.

    We have negotiated a 15% discount only available to 30% Club members, a saving of £150 on a single ticket to this leading summit which can be activated by using the code 30CLUB when registering.  Further discounts are available for two or more bookings.

    SPEAKERS INCLUDE:
    Helena Morrissey CBE, 
    Founder, 30% Club; Head of Personal Investing, Legal & General Investment Management
    Laszlo Bock, CEO, Humu; former SVP of People Operations, Google

    The 30% Club is partnering with HM Treasury and the Women in Finance Charter for this awards event.

    Of all the industries in which women are poorly represented at a senior level, finance and financial services have the biggest challenge to address.Despite making up more than half the finance workforce, women continue to dramatically lag behind their male counterparts in leadership roles.“Women account for 23 per cent of board members and just 14 per cent of executive committee members across UK-regulated financial services companies. But this is nowhere near ideal.”The Women in Finance Awards is the finance industry’s largest diversity initiative, recognising the high-achievers, advocates, and role models for women in the sector.  Organised by GrowthBusiness.co.uk and What Investment magazine, we aspire to see gender balance at all levels in the world of finance. This isn’t just a matter of corporate responsibility; it’s a matter of national urgency.The event will bring together key stakeholders to raise awareness of the sector’s diversity problem, further the gender balance agenda, as well as to celebrate inclusion, leadership and finance excellence.The lack of women in this sector is already taking toll on financial institutions, and the time to address this is now. Join us on 29th June 2017 for an evening of celebration and dialogue at the inaugural edition of the Women in Finance Awards.  

    Nominations for the 2017 Women in Finance Awards will close on 28 February 2017.
    The Women in Finance Awards is open to advocates, supporters, and achievers in the world of finance, actively bridging the diversity gap in the sector. But for this initiative to be a resounding a success, we need to know who you believe the women and advocates that deserve recognition are.
    So we urge you to nominate someone – a colleague, partner, client, friend, whomever in finance – you feel should be celebrated on this very special evening.
    The judges will convene two weeks before the awards ceremony to review all of the shortlisted nominations. They will decide the winners based on written submissions, supporting materials and video assets, so please include as much information as possible within the word limit. Whether you’re nominating yourself, or someone you believe should win, please fill out the nomination form using the criteria (accessible via the link below) of the category most relevant to your entry. Remember, the judges will refer to each criteria to guide their decisions, so shape your entry accordingly. Each written submission should be at least 600 words and a maximum of 1,000 words. There is no cost to nominate, and you can enter as many categories as you wish.

    To nominate and for event information, please see more detail here.

  • Kindly hosted by KPMG, London

    In 2015, the Davies Review put forward its closing recommendations and suggested that cross-sector appointments could help to improve the gender and professional diversity of boards. The latest data from Cranfield University’s Female FTSE Report 2016 shows that while the percentage of women on FTSE 100 boards has increased to 26% and to 20.4% on the FTSE 250 boards this year, the percentage of new appointments going to women over the past six months is only 24.7%. This is the lowest since September 2011.

    Better gender diversity at board level is a priority for UK businesses and universities. While both sectors have made big improvements, there is much more to be done. So far there has been little research into the exchange of board-level talent between businesses and academia. In response, KPMG and the 30% Club commissioned Professor Simonetta Manfredi, Director of the Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice at Oxford Brookes University, to conduct a study into this issue.

    Professor Simonetta Manfredi will be presenting the compelling findings of this report at this event kindly hosted by KPMG. This will be followed by a panel discussion, where Simonetta will be joined by business leaders including Anne Richards, Chief Executive Officer at M&G Group PLC.

She is a Master Practitioner in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming).

    Rather than feeling that leaders have to have all the answers, and directing things from the outside through command and control, using their own ego strength and energy (ego-intelligent leaders), eco-intelligent leaders see themselves as catalysts within an inter-dependent eco-system. Sharon’s talk will explore how leaders can bring eco-intelligence to bear on their day-to-day work and create self-sustaining eco-systems where staff can find higher levels of self- expression and purpose.

    企業を取り巻く環境はますます複雑性を増し、経営者の意思決定の難易度は高まっています。事業再編を含む高収益構造への転換、デジタルを利用したビジネスモデル変革、法令順守対応、海外進出等の施策を検討する上で自社の主要事業へのリスクを常に把握し、適時に判断・行動することが必要となっています。さらに、昨今は企業における会計および品質に関する不祥事などは報道で大きく取り上げられ、同時に不祥事発生時の対応を誤ることにより、株式市場における企業価値を大幅に毀損させている企業も少なくありません。将来の不確実性(リスク)を予見することで、経営上の意思決定の精度を高めることは日本企業のグローバル市場における競争優位性を高めます。
    本フォーラムでは、リスクマネジメントを含むガバナンス機能強化のための最先端の知見をご紹介し、日本企業の競争力向上につながる示唆をご提供することを目的としています。はじめに、OECD諮問機関である経済産業諮問委員会のコーポレートガバナンス委員長のDan Konigsburgよりグローバルにおけるガバナンスの潮流を解説した後に、最新テクノロジーを活用したリスクセンシングの事例を紹介します。また、グローバル企業の経営陣が留意すべきリスク(M&Aリスク、コンプライアンスリスク、税務リスク等)について、デロイトの専門家が最新動向をご紹介いたします。

    KUALA LUMPUR, 13 MARCH 2019 – In celebration of International Women’s Day 2019, Heriot-Watt University in partnership with the 30% Club Malaysia Chapter are pleased to announce their annual scholarship offer of RM58,050 for a successful female applicant to attend a two-year, part-time MBA programme at its Edinburgh Business School Malaysia campus.  This will be their third year of collaboration platformed on a shared long-term vision to drive higher women representation in leadership and decision-making positions.  Applications for the 2019 scholarship will open from 1st April to 30th June.

     

    Heriot-Watt University has long been a proponent of inclusivity in education.  In 1869, it became the first Scottish university to open its doors to women.  

     

    “An MBA is a proven pathway to building successful careers and yet most of our applicants are men. Together with the 30% Club, we established the annual woman scholarship with the end game to increase women representation at senior levels of business,” says Professor Mushtak Al-Atabi, CEO Heriot-Watt University Malaysia.

     

    Echoing this sentiment, Tan Sri Zarinah Anwar, Founding Chair of the 30% Club Malaysia Chapter said, “Our partnership with Heriot-Watt University is in line with the 30% Club’s objectives of strengthening the female boardroom pipeline to ensure that we get better gender balance in the boardrooms of Malaysian companies.”

     

    Since its formation in May 2015, the 30% Club Malaysia Chapter has embarked on several initiatives, including its signature Mentoring Programme, which is a platform to provide board-ready women and new women directors an opportunity to network and raise their visibility in the right board circles.    

    Latest statistics show Malaysia recording 15.7% women directors on the boards across all public-listed companies and 24.4% across the top 100 companies, putting it in lead position on gender diversity among the ASEAN countries.

    Women on Boards in Malaysia
    Using firm-level data for 806 public-listed companies in Malaysia, we highlight the extent of women’s participation as board members in Malaysia benchmarked against other countries. How this women’s participation varies by industry and firm-size is considered, along with its potential impact on the company’s performance. About 13 percent of the board positions in Malaysia filled by women and the rest by men in 2017. Moreover, the trend over the last four years reveals a slow pace of increase in the proportion of women board members. The largest 100 firms and some industries such as finance show a greater tendency to have female vs. male board members. The profit rate is significantly positively correlated with proportionately more female board members in a firm, suggesting a “business case” for more women on the boards.

    Rohani: More women in workforce vital for progress

    The Star Malaysia
    22 Nov 2016

    PETALING JAYA: There can be no developed Malaysia until the country is able to get women to realise their full potential and participate more effectively in the economic and social development of the nation, said Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim.

    Citing a study by the 2016 Peterson Institute for National Economics, she said the presence of more female leaders in top positions of corporate management correlates with increased profitability.

    The Women, Family and Community Development Minister was speaking at the launch of the Women’s Institute of Management’s Conference on Integrity and Governance for Company Directors In the Public and Private Sectors.

    “This proves that women are really needed in decisionmaking positions to boost the success of companies and subsequently, the Malaysian economy,” she said.

    Rohani said that one ongoing effort to achieve this was the establishment of the 30 Percent Club, aimed at boosting the number of women holding top decisionmaking positions in the private sector.

    She said the Government sought to grow the 30 Percent Club by strengthening its affiliation with similar clubs in other countries, such as Britain, the United States and China.

    She added that the percentage of women on boards of public listed companies was at 11.8% as of September.

    The ministry is also working with TalentCorp on a programme to encourage more women to return to the workforce, to bring women’s participation to 59% in line with the target set by the 11th Malaysia Plan.

    Rohani said that while the number of women students attending institutes of higher learning was encouraging, their participation in the workforce often fluctuates.

    “About 71% of university students are women and you’d expect

    About 71% of university students are women and you’d expect a wider participation in the workforce but that is not the case. Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim

    a wider participation in the workforce but that is not the case, as they leave the workforce to start a family,” Rohani said at a press conference after the event.

    As of last year, female participation in the workforce was 54.1%.

    Earlier, in her speech, Rohani stressed the importance of integrity and good corporate governance.

    “These are key drivers that determine not only the capacity of a nation to grow economically and inclusively, but also its competitiveness in the global market,” she said.

    Rohani said it was imperative that all officials discharge their duty with high integrity and proper governance because the consequences of not doing so was huge.

    “Combating mismanagement, abuse of power and corruption is crucial as these erode our values.

    “There is an urgent need to ingrain integrity and good governance in our public and private institutions,” she said.

    On a separate matter, Rohani said she also plans to urge the Transport Ministry to make child seats in cars mandatory, following the death of a twoyearold in Johor after he was accidentally flung out of his parents’ car.

    “The Road Transport Department has mentioned the mandatory use of child seats in cars by 2019, which gives parents ample time to comply.

    “But I would like to discuss expediting the move with the Transport Ministry to avoid a repeat of this tragedy,” she said, reminding parents to always make child safety a top priority.

    We are pleased to announce our brand new Boardroom Series for Women Leaders which includes our flagship annual 30% Club Boardroom Lunch. The series is composed of educational workshops and networking events with key Board Directors, Executive Search firms and peers. It offers a more sustained and results-focused programme to help us achieve our collective goal of increasing the number of women on boards.

    Our launch of this initiative starts with the "Roundtable Breakfast: From the C-Suite to the Board" which aims to link board-ready and board-aspiring Women to Watch with Executive Search Firms and to have an open dialogue regarding challenges and diversity in HK boardrooms. There will be a panel discussion with Nick Allen (Chairman of Link REIT) focusing on what boards and chairs are looking for in potential board candidates.
     
    Often the challenges involved in the shift from the C-Suite to the Board involves the use of different skills, which we'll highlight in this session. We will dive into where and what to focus on when building board portfolios and how to position yourself to stand out. The groups will break into roundtables led by senior representatives from the search firms to discuss these challenges.

    Although businesses are increasingly recognizing the benefits of diversity and inclusion, the number of women on Asian boards has barely moved the needle in recent years. Yet, companies in the West have made great leaps forward to change the status quo. Why is that? We need to ask ourselves:

    • Can Asia achieve diversity at board level? What are the opportunities and challenges
    • What lessons can we learn from outside of Asia?
    • How can we make a difference?
    • How can you, as a senior leader in Asia, stand out from the crowd to be appointed to boards both at home and abroad?

    Heidrick & Struggles and the 30% club are delighted to invite you to this compelling panel discussion featuring one of the most influential board search consultants in the industry, Bonnie Gwin (Vice Chairman and Co-Managing Partner of the Global CEO & Board Practice of Heidrick & Struggles), as well as Fern Ngai (CEO of Community Business), Fiona Nott (CEO of The Women’s Foundation) and May Tan (Former CEO of Standard Chartered and INED of Link Asset Management). The event will be moderated by Kyoko Altman, Director of HSBC Global Banking and Markets and ex-CNN anchor.

    The Australian chapter of the 30% Club is celebrating the significant progress that has been made during the past three years towards the achievement of the 30 per cent target. Although the target of 30 per cent female directors on ASX 200 boards was not reached by the end of 2018, we are within reach.

    The 30% Club Australian chapter are launching a new target of 30 per cent female directors on ASX 300 boards by the end of 2021. There are currently 19.7% female directors on ASX 201-300 boards, so committed effort is required to achieve the target.

    Panellists at the event will discuss the ASX 300 target, the establishment of a new Investment Banking & Private Equity working group, the stakeholders that need to be engaged in this space and the successes of the ASX 200 campaign.
