star this property answer text <p>We welcome Cranfield’s research, helping the business community to identify and address barriers to achieving gender-balanced leadership. Cranfield’s 2018 Board Report shows that the FTSE 100 are on track to meet the Hampton-Alexander Review target. This is for women to hold 33% of positions on FTSE Boards by 2020, as well as on Executive Committees and their Direct Reports. 29% of board positions are now held by women, up from 27.7% in October 2017 and 12.5% in 2011. The FTSE 250 however, need to take action to address their slow progress.</p><p>The Government is supporting the Hampton-Alexander Review targets. Our new requirement for large employers to publish gender pay gap information is also exposing where women face barriers to progression and supporting employers to remove these. Other initiatives that support the talent pipeline of women include the Women’s Business Council’s action groups: Starting Out, Getting On and Staying On. The Government has also allocated £5million to help people who have taken time out for caring responsibilities, to return to work.</p><p>Our £1.5m Women’s Votes Centenary Grant Scheme is supporting grassroots projects across England that encourage more women to participate in all levels of politics so that they can have an equal voice in decision-making.</p>

There are now no all-male boards in the FTSE 100 down from 21 in 2011. This is great progress but we must go further. We are supporting the Hampton-Alexander Review to meet their targets of women holding 33% of senior leadership positions and 33% of board positions in the FTSE 350, by 2020. The Government Equalities Office and The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy provide secretariat, policy and analytical support to the Review.
