Ministers renew efforts to increase opportunities for talented women at the top of UK business


On 1 November 2021, BEIS announced that the government will support a new five-year independent review to monitor the representation of women among leaders of FTSE 350 companies, focusing not just on board membership but also on senior leadership roles.

The FTSE Women Leaders Review follows on from the Hampton-Alexander Review, which published its final report in February 2021 and before it the Davies Review. New leadership will be appointed to steer the Review and take forward new targets.

The Review has launched an online portal for FTSE 350 companies to submit relevant data. The portal will be open until 30 November 2021, with the next annual report on gender diversity being published in February 2022.
