Women hunt

October 6, 2011

In February, Lord Davies of Abersoch concluded an UK inquiry into male boardroom dominance. As a result the report has been issued, warning big British businesses to double the number of women in boardrooms or face government sanctions.

It took only six months for the group of leading headhunting companies to respond. With a voluntary code of conduct, they decided to ensure more women get positions on company boards. According to the agreement, recruitment companies shall be from now on preparing lists with at least 30% female candidates, considering personal qualities as well as experience. In addition women shall be supported during the selection process.

To meet the Davies report on women on executive boards that recommends at least 25% of FTSE 100 board members to be women by 2015, compared with around 14% now, the head hunters will have to roll up their sleeves.
