||<p>Government does not make assessments of the number of women in senior roles at
UK energy companies, but alongside sponsoring the Hampton-Alexander Review on FTSE
Women Leaders and promoting diversity in the energy sector, we support the work of
POWERful Women which collates data on gender diversity in senior and middle management
levels in the energy sector - which can be found at: <a href="http://powerfulwomen.org.uk/board-statistics-by-company/"
progress has been made in that the representation of women on FTSE 100 boards has
increased from 12.5% in 2011 to 31.6% in May 2019 and among executive directors has
doubled from 5.5% to 10.3% in the same period.</p><p> </p>
