In 2017 the Review extended the 33% target for Executive Committee and the Direct Reports to the Executive Committee to the FTSE 250. The results published in the 2017 report highlighted that while progress was being made, a step change was needed in pace. With just less than a third of FTSE 350 leadership roles going to women in the year, this was falling short of the appointment rate required to reach the 33% target by 2020. It set the ambition that almost one in two or around 40% of all appointments need to go to women over the next three years to achieve the 33% target.
