NEW findings on gender and ethnic diversity in board and executive leadership teams in the FTSE All-Share below the 350. Published June 2022 in partnership with global consulting firm Protiviti.
Our Hidden Truth report, now in its second year and published in partnership with global consulting firm Protiviti, monitors the gender and ethnic minority representation on FTSE All-Share boards – the 252 companies below the largest 350 companies (ex350). The report calls for ongoing and deeper scrutiny across listed companies to give a true picture of UK boardroom diversity.
- 50% of UK firms in FTSE All-Share ex350 have no women in C-Suite positions
- 44% of firms have not achieved the target of 33% women on boards
- A quarter of boards (25%) have one director of colour, up from 16% in 2021 – but 75% of boards are entirely white
