29% of FTSE 100 board positions are held by women.

According to data in the Hampton-Alexander Review, more women than ever before are on the boards of the UK’s largest companies.

Today talented women hold 29% of FTSE 100 board positions, up from 12.5% in 2011.

Still, a lot has to be done to meet the target of 33% women in board positions by 2020 to tackle the gender pay gap as part of the government’s new Industrial Strategy.
