United Kingdom

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. That target was reached in September 2018 and good progress has been made (currently at 32.5%*), but there is still much more work to do to achieve better gender balance at the top of businesses. 

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 campaign goals: for every FTSE 100 company to have 30% of its senior management roles held by women and for every FTSE 350 company to have 30% of its board positions 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
The percentage of women on FTSE-100 boards currently stands at 32.5%* up from 12.5% when we launched the 30% Club campaign back in 2010. Accelerated progress has been achieved through the leadership of Chairs and CEOs, our Members. As of 2016, we extended the scope of our original target and we introduced a pipeline target to sit alongside this:

  • a minimum of 30% women on FTSE 350 boards by 2020 (currently at 29.9%*).
  • 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).

MEMBERSHIP
UK membership is primarily targeted at Chairs and CEOs of listed companies - if not within the FTSE 350 organisations need to have a workforce of 250 employees or more to qualify for membership (for further information please see FAQs below or email Francoise Higson).

    • Welcome In - we examine recruitment and selection practices for unconscious bias
    • Pull Through - we investigate ways to improve the rate of promotion of talented women
    • 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.

  • Higher Education

    Main aims

    The Higher Education group focuses on diversity in universities and higher education establishments to encourage a pooling of ideas across both the corporate and the higher education sectors to reduce the gender gap across governing bodies and faculties, as well as to analyse and act to improve the experiences of female students.

    Please click here for a copy of the Think Future Study report, commissioned to better understand how university shapes career perceptions and trajectories and whether these vary depending on gender or socio-economic background. The report gives a current perspective on how universities can support Generation Z as they head towards the next stage of their lives, how businesses can best appeal to a generation with different expectations and aspirations and how to nurture this emerging talent stream.

  • 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.

  • Speakers for Schools Partnership

    Main aims

    In January 2015, the 30% Club launched its collaboration with Speakers for Schools, an education charity that helps state secondary schools access the time of today’s eminent and influential figures across a range of industries for free school talks, starting with our own campaign seeing over 20 of our top business leaders  take part in the talk series “Equality Across the Board” . Today, the charity enlists the help of our top UK Members to visit state schools to give their time for inspiring talks each year, sharing their insights  as well as the message of 30% Club to see young women encouraged in their potential as leaders and future Boardroom members. Since 2017, the charity has also started supporting leading firms in offering short work experience placements for students from more diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds to help them to aspire to the professional world.  Our work with Speakers for Schools aims to support young women prior to starting their career, and we warmly encourage our Members to sign up to the initiative and find out more about how the charity can help you and your company reach young people.

  • Central Hall Westminster, London

    The 30% Club mentoring scheme, developed with the support of EY offers cross-company, cross-sector mentoring to women at every layer of the career pyramid. It aims to complement other schemes in the marketplace, or within individual organisations, where cross-company mentoring is usually only available to very senior women.

    Here in the UK the programme is delivered by Women Ahead, a social impact organisation working to create an inclusive society in which individuals and organisations can be at their best.  The initiative has had tremendous success and we have been able to scale and grow the offering with circa 2800 mentors and mentees and 100+ organisations now taking part in the programme.

    Registration for the 2019-20 cohort is now closed but to register interest for 2020-21 please contact Rebecca Davies at Rebecca.davies@moving-ahead.org or on 01491 579726.

    Join us in October for the return of the FT's summit on gender equality in business.
    30% Club members are entitled to a 15% discount to attend. Hear leaders share
    their stories of success and setbacks, learn from honest discussion about the
    obstacles stalling further progress, and take part in forward-looking, action-focused
    debate with the women and men driving change.
     
    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.

    This high-profile forum builds on the success of the first Women in Finance Summit held at Bloomberg’s headquarters in January 2017, the second edition of the same event held in March 2018 and the Vote 100 Women Summit, held in London last April, at which a member of the British Royal Family, HRH the Countess of Wessex, was a keynote speaker and participant. Each of these three events attracted 250+ senior delegates.

    This year’s themes are:

    • What does the future of the financial services sector look like and what does this mean for the role of women? 
    • Two years since the launch of the HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter – how has it impacted men and women at all levels of leadership? 
    • Transforming culture - how can we effectively change the way we recruit, promote gender diversity across the company and the way we work together?
    • Gender pay gap reporting – what are reports showing?   
    • Examining barriers faced by female executives and exploring what can be done to overcome them
    • 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?  
    • Recruitment practices as one of the key areas inhibiting the progression of women in the industry. What needs to change for firms to meet their gender targets? How do millennials see diversity?
    • The impact of technology such as AI on the workplace and the structure of work
    • How could women benefit from the latest developments in technology? How do you attract female talent in fintech

    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
    • What next? Moving forward and finding the ways to drive permanent and sustainable change across the financial services industry. Best practices to effectively engage men in implementation of your gender diversity programmes

    If you'd like to register for the Singapore event, please do so via this link.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    Theme: Ego & Eco Intelligence
    Keynote speaker: Sharon Oliver – Ashridge Executive Education. Sharon holds an MA in Organisational Psychology. Her key areas of specialisation include: Developing internal resourcefulness, Managing emotional diet, Building HR capacity, Managing polarities, Discovering success DNA, Mindfulness, EQ and SQ, The Levity effect (fun and Laughter at work), Heart Intelligence, Women in Global Leadership. 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.

FAQs


  • The campaign was founded by Dame Helena Morrissey DBE and is now run by Global co-Chairs, Brenda Trenowden CBE and Ann Cairns.
  • The 30% Club is supported by our Ambassadors and Working Groups that are made up of senior directors and executives who volunteer their time and skills to help direct efforts.
  • Our members are Chairs, CEOs and equivalents.
  • We are a voluntary campaign and rely entirely on support in kind to sustain our efforts.
  • Our membership is primarily targeted at Chairs and CEOs of listed companies.
  • Organisations that don’t fall within the FTSE 350 must have a workforce of 250 employees or more.
  • Chairs join in their personal capacity and CEOs join in their corporate capacity, although it is assumed that both will use their influence to bring about change within their organisations.
  • Chair Members must set an aspirational target of 30% women on their boards by 2020.
  • CEO Members must set an aspirational target of 30% women at senior management level by 2020.
  • There is no financial commitment involved.
  • For more details and a copy of our membership “asks” please contact francoise@30percentclub.org .

In joining Chairs and CEOs agree to:

  • lend their name to the 30% Club campaign and signal to both the public and to their organisations alike that they support gender diversity as a business imperative
  • use their influence to drive change within their organisations
  • set explicit targets at board level and senior management level
  • be publicly listed as Members of the 30% Club in the 30% Club’s literature, on the website and in communication
  • campaigns
  • actively promote the 30% Club and its aims to CEOs, Chairs and key influencers
  • list their membership of the 30% Club in their bio
  • Whilst some Members merely lend their name to the campaign, others publicly advocate, host events, sponsor research and participate in our mentoring scheme.
  • We restrict to larger organisations due only to our limited resources.
  • As a campaign run by volunteers, we simply don’t have capacity to serve endless numbers of members, much as we would like to (we always strive to be as inclusive and collaborative as possible).
