The number of women at the head of the largest British firms grew


Moscow. November 16. To date, seven companies among the 150 largest UK firms were headed by women, although in 2013 there were only two, the Financial Times writes with reference to the study of job recruiter Spencer Stuart.

In addition, according to the expert, women are in leadership positions in other organizations. For example, the Chairman of the Board of the British division of the Bank Santander is the Baroness of Sriti of Vader, and the Council on the revision of the banking standards (BSRC) is leading lady Colette Bowe.

“Sure, that is real progress, but we clearly still too early to say that the goal is achieved, noted Manjit Wolstenholm, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Provident Financial. – For the companies reflect the diversity among regular employees, we need to enter in boards of Directors, more women, black and ethnic minorities”.

Only the boards of Directors of 150 largest UK companies only 78 representatives of these groups, or 4%, and if you take the UK nationals, the percentage is only 1.9%.
