This Is What Britain's Top Businesses Look Like Without Men

Erase the men to see the real picture of women on boards today.

Posted on

A quarter of board positions at the UK’s leading businesses are now held by women, a new report has shown.

The amount of women on boards at FTSE 100 companies has more than doubled from 12.5% in 2011, and the report, by Lord Davies, says that by 2020 there should be 33% women on boards of the top 350 businesses in the UK.

But many have said this is not good enough.

Slide the pictures to erase the men from the boards of the top 10 businesses on the FTSE 100 and FTSE 350 to see what the amount of women in senior positions today really looks like.


The top 10 FTSE 100 companies and and top 10 FTSE 350 companies are correct according to the FTSE All-share index ranking as of Friday 23 October 2015.
