The annual Female FTSE Board Report by Cranfield University School of Management is published today and shows almost no improvement in women’s participation at board level in the UK’s top 100 companies.
Many people will be familiar with the McKinsey annual survey into diversity progress, Women Matter.
The advisory firm has been tracking progress in 441 carefully selected companies across Europe, the US, Canada and the Bric nations for the past four years. The 2010 survey, which is based on 1500 respondents within those companies, was fascinating, but a few key facts stood out.
McKinsey, the consultancy, delivered its latest Women Matter study at the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society in Deauville this week. Part of ongoing research conducted since 2007, this latest report is partly based on a survey of approximately 1,500 business leaders worldwide across all industries, from middle managers to chief executives.
