The Government has recently issued a new target for the number of women on FTSE company boards of 33%. The Hampton/Alexander Review will be looking more closely at this agenda over the coming months.
Earlier this year, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published a report of its Inquiry into diversity in board level recruitment and appointment practices in FTSE 350 companies. Join the ICSA and EHRC for this concise, evening event which reveals the inquiry findings explaining why many companies have failed to meet the gender diversity target and the solutions to improving board diversity.
Providing clear guidance and practical steps on ways to improve diversity on the board through appointment on merit, this event details what companies should be considering when making an appointment to the board and in developing the talent pipeline as well as ongoing action to improve diversity. Delegates can also gain insight on the legal implications of addressing diversity on company boards.
Featuring input from the ICSA and the EHRC, this unique event exposes what’s really happening in recruitment for FTSE 350 boards and gives you the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals and discuss why diversity should be a key priority for the board and wider workforce.
