HEADING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

Times are changing in the boardroom. The number of female directors in FTSE 100 companies has increased by 50 per cent in the last five years.

The government-backed review, launched in 2016, achieved its target of 33 per cent of board positions on FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies to be held by women last December.


The results have been hailed as “a dramatic shift” in representation at  that women’s representation in wider senior leadership is also rising.

Sir Philip Hampton, who chaired the review, has echoed calls to boost the number of women in top executive positions.


He says: “There’s been excellent progress for women leaders in business over the last 10 years or more, with boards and shareholders determined to see change.


“The progress has been strongest with non-executive positions on boards, but the coming years should see many more women taking top executive roles. That’s what is needed to sustain the changes made.”


Business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng adds: “We cannot become complacent in building a society where everyone has an opportunity to get on and succeed.


“As we look to build back better from the pandemic, it’s important businesses keep challenging themselves to use all the talents of our workforce and open up the top ranks for more, highly-accomplished women.”


Equality is not a women’s issue, it is a business issue


Echoing that call, Lancashire Business View has put the spotlight on the county’s up and coming women in business and the part they will play in 


We’ve been looking at entrepreneurs and innovators who will play a major role in taking Lancashire’s economy forward.


And from the nominations we’ve received from across the county and from all sectors of the county’s economy, we’ve chosen, with the aid of our special invited panel, a list of who we believe represent the very best values of Lancashire’s inspirational women.


We publish them here, not in any particular order, to celebrate their work and the contribution they are making and will make in the future.
