Number of senior women in Britain's boardrooms unchanged in 10 years

The diversity on most of the worlds corporate, government and even NFP organisations is still way off matching their customer base and the population as a whole.  In the UK The number of senior women on boards has remained unchanged for 10 years.  (And in my humble opinion - if the interventions being made do not create a material change after 10 years then maybe it is time to try something new?)

The analysis by Cranfield School of Management shows that the proportion of women holding the most influential non-executive positions, such as chairman and senior independent director, is just 8%, compared with 6% a decade ago.

The report shows that women now hold 27.7% of directors’ seats in the boardrooms of FTSE 100 companies compared with 11% in 2007, but it is largely a result of women being hired from outside to part-time non-executive roles as part of a drive to meet targets.

The Guardian has the full story.  Time to do something different.
