• 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...

“In my judgment, shareholders benefit when boards have a diversity of skills, background and experience. That’s the way the most effective boards tend to be composed – with both men and women playing a full part.”

David Tyler
Chairman, Sainsbury’s

“First, if we don’t have more senior women we aren’t getting a sufficient contribution from some of our most able people.  Second, you’re less likely to get the breadth of input to critical discussions and decisions if you only access one gender.”

Sir Philip Hampton
Chairman, The Royal Bank of Scotland
