United Kingdom

The 30% Club was founded in the UK in 2010. We now have chapters in 9 other countries. Led by Brenda Trenowden, our Global Chair, we collaborate with businesses, governments and other campaigns to improve gender diversity and accelerate the pace of change from schoolroom to boardroom. We support research on why women are good for business and what works to ensure more women progress through the executive pipeline.

The campaign originally launched with a goal of achieving a minimum of 30% women on FTSE-100 boards - currently the figure stands at 27.6%* up from 12.5% 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 the goal is now a minimum of 30% women on FTSE-350 boards by 2020 (currently at 24.1%*). In tandem with this – and in order to ensure that this 30% remains sustainable – we have also established a pipeline target of a minimum of 30% women at senior management level of FTSE-100 companies by 2020 (currently women make up 19.4%** of FTSE 100 ExCos). 

UK membership is open to Chairs and CEOs of listed companies, Managing Partners of professional services firms, and heads of public sector organisations and academic institutions, as well as non-listed companies on a case by case basis based on size and strategic fit.

Working groups

  • Automotive

    Main aims

    The Automotive working group is made up of MDs and CEOs from automotive manufacturing, retailing and supplier companies. Our aim is to fill at least 30% of key leadership positions in our organisations with women, from junior management to board level.

    We are implementing a four phase strategy:

    • Reach Out - we connect with young women in schools, universities and professional networks through speeches and career events, and offer work experience opportunities
    • 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

    We work in partnership with the charity Speakers for Schools and the Inspiring Women campaign, and we have support from members McKinsey, the Institute of the Motor Industry, and Loughborough University School of Business and Economics.

  • Business Schools

    Main aims

    As part of The 30% Club ‘Balancing the Pyramid’ initiative which aims to encourage and increase the female gender balance at all organisational levels, we are establishing partnerships with a number of business schools globally to rectify the under-representation of women pursuing post-graduate management education by offering Women’s Scholarships. Through these partnerships we seek to build a continuum of change from schoolroom to boardroom, helping women to make the decision to undertake further education, supporting them through the application process, providing them with a mentor during the programme and highlighting the successes and high return on investment afterwards.

  • Cross-Company Mentoring

    Main aims

    The objective of the 30% Club’s mentoring scheme is to offer and facilitate a cross-company, cross-sector mentoring programme that will complement existing schemes in the UK market and within individual organisations. The ultimate goal is to broaden the pipeline of female talent coming through participating organisations and make a step change to the number of women attaining senior leadership roles in their respective organisations.

    Now in its fifth year in the UK, the initiative has had tremendous success – this scheme represents the power of mentoring at its best. The cross-company mentoring scheme has also extended to help build the pipeline and parity of women on sports boards, and now matches women leaders working in sporting organisations with male and female mentors who are leaders of corporate organisations. 

    Barring exceptional circumstances, we ask that organisations wishing to participate contribute a subscription fee in-line with the number of participants ranging from £4,000 to £8,000. The current cohort comprises circa 1200 participants across 60+ organisations. To watch a clip of a previous launch event please click here. For our scheme literature please click here.

  • 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 purpose of the Investors Group is to help coordinate the investment community’s approach to gender diversity. In particular, to explain the investment case for more diverse boards; to encourage all investors to engage on the issue of board diversity with chairs and management teams and to consider diversity when voting on the Report & Accounts and the appointment and re-election of board members.

    Whilst we are strongly supportive of voluntary targets over quotas, we believe that it is important that investors actively oversee companies’ actions. We encourage investors to engage directly with companies in the first instance. However, we believe that, over time, this should extend to AGM voting in the event of inadequate board leadership. 

    We are calling for the investment community to follow the principles of the statement of intent and to use to investor toolkit in their conversations with Boards and CEOs.

    1. Statement of Intent for Investorswhich outlines the beliefs and objectives that the members of the 30% Club Investors Working Group have agreed to. We invite other fund managers and asset owners to pledge support to the principles in this Statement;
    2. Investor toolkit for engaging boards on diversitythis toolkit has been 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:

  • Speakers for Schools Partnership

    Main aims

    In January 2015, the 30% Club launched its collaboration with Speakers for Schools, a charity that organises free talks from eminent professionals and academics for state secondary schools and colleges, by delivering a series of over 20 talks from top business leaders, encouraging girls to see their potential in leadership positions. A host of leading industry executives gave the talks on the theme of ‘Equality Across the Board’ to teenagers to help encourage and make them aware that opportunities and workplaces are changing, especially for women, and gender should not prevent them from fulfilling their aspirations. This programme further develops the 30% Club’s ‘Schoolroom to Boardroom’ campaign, which aims to support young women prior to starting their career, and we warmly encourage our Members to sign up to the initiative and go out to speak in schools.

  • Women Returners

    Main aims

    Potential female returners are a largely untapped talent pool and the 30% Club is looking to highlight the benefits of hiring professional women back into the workforce following an extended career break. Our principal aims are to:

    • raise awareness of women returner programmes
    • promote these programmes as a practical tool that works well in conjunction with other gender balance initiatives, and can have an immediate impact
    • facilitate connectivity between organisations that want to establish returner programmes and those who can support, as well as with other organisations who have existing programmes running
    • reinforce the message that encouraging women back to work is a good and first step and also requires continued changes to the work environment around flexibility which will not only increase the chances of the success of returnship programmes, but create a better working environment for all

    Please note that Credit Suisse has recently launched the application process for the fifth iteration of its returners programme. Further detail on the programme and the application process are available here. The application window for the UK programme closes on 08 December 2017.

    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.
