• The 30% Club launched in 2010 with a goal of 30% women on UK FTSE-100 boards by 2015 - currently 20.4%, up from 12.6%.  Accelerated progress has been achieved through the leadership of Chairs and CEOs, our members.

    Increasing board diversity is key to driving profitable growth. Having a better balance - at least 30% senior female leaders - positively influences both a company's culture and the decision-making process.

  • We aim to meet this goal by:

    • Inspiring company leaders to appoint more women to executive and non-executive directorships;
    • Improving the pipeline below board level, to widen the talent pool available to business;
    • Supporting and encouraging successful women in business.

What our members say...

“Mao Tse-Tung once said: ‘Women hold up half the sky’, an observation at odds with the reality of UK business where the upper echelons – at board and partner level – still tend to be heavily dominated by men. It’s time to crack this nut. The 30% Club is designed to bring a better balance to boards and partnerships. Essential for any business that wants to remain competitive in the future, in my view.”

David Morley
Chairman, Allen & Overy

“As a Chairman I’ve been involved for some years in mentoring talented women preparing for a non-executive director role and also appointing women to match the skill sets needed for the boards I chair.  So I want to continue to champion talented women on UK boards.”

Sir John Parker
Chairman, Anglo American
