In this webinar, Sue Vinnicombe and Elena Doldor will review the progress made by women on FTSE Protected content with a particular focus on FTSE Protected content . They will not only look at the increases in numbers of women on boards but also the roles they play, their tenures and whether they have multiple directorships. Whilst all FTSE Protected content have already hit the Hampton Alexander target of 33% women on boards set for the end of Protected content , it is increasingly clear that women are not getting positions of influence such as Chair, SID or Committee Chair. We will discuss the implications of these findings.

The webinar will also look at the findings from a special project investigating how major organisations are making targets work for them in their pursuit of greater gender and ethnic diversity. Davies and Hampton Alexander have helped to normalize the use of diversity targets and many organisations are happy to just adopt the targets set for FTSE Protected content , but there is still work to be done to explain that diversity targets do not compromise meritocracy, but rather enable it.
