star this property answer text <p>In 2017, the FTSE 100 had 25.2% women in executive committees and direct reports. This had barely changed from 2016, showing that robust action is needed from businesses to achieve the Hampton-Alexander Review’s target of 33% by 2020.</p><p>To increase the level of ambition, the Hampton-Alexander Review has now extended the executive pipeline target of 33% women from the FTSE 100 to the wider FTSE 350 – around 1 in 2 of all new appointments needing to go to women to achieve this target by 2020. We will continue to support the Review to work collaboratively with business to disseminate the importance of diversity in executive roles.</p> more like this
