Daily Mail: Top British companies won´t meet diversity target until 2066Media Coverage // Posted 4 months ago by Green Park
According to Green Park’s Leadership 10,000 report, FTSE 100 companies will not meet their diversity targets – at least one ethnic minority director on every board by 2021 – for half a century.
Green Park finds that 48 of FTSE 100 companies, still have no ethnic minority on their board and at current rates of progress – one extra company every year – it will be 2066 before they meet the target that was set out by the Government-backed Parker Review.
However, diversity efforts are paying off for females who now hold almost 40% of Non-Executive Director roles.
Raj Tulsiani, CEO of Green Park comments: “The corporate pipeline is slowly adding women to the mainstream – but largely still only white women; and the pipeline marked ‘black men’ remains resolutely empty. As a result, overall progress is stalling, and in practice it may mean that we risk failing to hit the Parker target.”
