Number of FTSE 100 Female CEOs Hits Double Digits

The number of female CEOs in the FTSE 100 has reached double digits for the first time, according to the 30% Club, a business campaign aiming to boost the number of women in board seats and executive leadership of companies all over the world. The ten female CEOs head companies including Aviva, Natwest Group and Severn Trent. Ann Cairns, Global Chair of the 30% Club and Executive Vice Chair of Mastercard, said: “We’ve been keeping an eye on the figures for the past 18 months at the 30% Club, so progress has certainly been a long time coming. There’s no denying we’re nowhere near the critical mass of 30% that research shows is the point at which minority voices become heard and progress to gender balance accelerates. Yet this figure of ten female CEOs is a reason for optimism given the otherwise gloomy statistics that show there’s been barely any change in the number of women at executive committee level across the entire FTSE 350 since last April. We’re still at less than 25%.”
