Figures announced today show Britain’s top companies have made progress on gender diversity by doubling the number of female directors.

Nickie Gott, Chair of NECC’s Women’s Advisory Board, shares what she thinks this means for the North East:

 

“The Davies report definitely shows UK business is heading in the right direction. We strongly support the view that a much better balance should be encouraged on boards and encourage businesses to move outside established networks to make their organisations more diverse. Not to tick any boxes, but to prevent women from missing an opportunity they deserve, due to an outdated culture.

 

“As we have relatively few FTSE companies in the North East, Lord Davies’ Report does not realistically reflect our businesses. Nevertheless, we recognise the symbolic importance of these statistics.

 

“Our members continue to tell us the positive impact having a diverse workforce is having on their company performance and we will use these stories to encourage smaller firms to follow this lead. It’s important for this trend to continue in the North East.”
