Women in finance: a springboard to corporate board positions?

This report explores whether having a financial background or qualification affects the likelihood that senior women will obtain a FTSE 100 board directorship.

The study includes a review of relevant literature; an analysis of the publicly available CVs of 1,086 male and female FTSE 100 board directors and findings from 20 interviews conducted with key stakeholders, including board consultants from seven executive search firms, five chairmen of FTSE-listed companies and eight individual female directors.

A joint report from ACCA and the ESRC.
