In the article, Ann Cairns, global chair of the 30% Club, the campaigning body focused on championing better boardroom representation of women globally said, “The Hampton-Alexander Review has played a significant role in bringing about greater gender diversity to the boardrooms of Britain’s biggest companies,” but then added, “progress in female representation at the highest levels remained fragile and slow. ”
Campbell & Fletcher Recruitment have always supported all campaigns to close gender diversity. “Being members of the Women in Finance Charter, we are committed to encouraging and supporting firms in the progression of women into senior roles in the financial services sector. We believe your workforce should reflect the diverse world we live in”, commented Tracy Fletcher, Managing Director.
Studies show that companies that rank in the top quartile for gender, racial and ethnic diversity amongst their senior management were more likely to have financial returns above those who fail to address diversity challenges. A diverse workforce offers fresh viewpoint perspectives, innovation and commercial success.
