UK-listed companies are at risk of falling short of a government-backed target for at least a third of executive leadership positions to be filled by women by the end of next year. The Hampton-Alexander review found the proportion of women in the more than 20,000 senior leadership positions in FTSE 350 companies it monitors had increased this year to 28.6 per cent from 27 per cent in 2018. “There are over 900 women now serving on FTSE 350 boards, providing an ever-increasing pool of women with substantial board experience,” said Denise Wilson, the review’s chief executive.
