Companies warned 'you lack senior women'
Firms including Domino's Pizza and JD Sports told to appoint more women directors or risk investor warning.
Dozens of firms, have been told to put more women in their boardrooms. Recent data have also shown that instead of getting closer to the 30% women on Boards the figure has been decreasing. The Investment Association and the government-backed Hampton-Alexander wrote to 69 companies calling on them to have 33% of their boards made up of women by 2020.
I believe it is disappointing that this step needs to be taken although on the other hand such a step simply needs to be necessary to keep these companies on their toes and on the radar.
An important point in this article is that the fact that companies had failed to bring women into board rooms and into leadership positions "does not reflect the population of very talented women capable of making great contributions in boardrooms".
