3 Reasons to Add More Women to Your Executive Team

There are more women in the workforce than ever before, yet there remains a dearth of women in boardrooms. The Hampton-Alexander Review of women in leadership positions in the FTSE 350 paints a grim picture, showing that while as of 2018 the number of all-male boardrooms in the FTSE 350 was down to just five, to hit the government's 2020 targets for 33% female boardrooms, 50 percent of future appointments would need to be female.
