Our Findings

The Davies Review concluded in two key areas:

  • identified barriers preventing more women reaching the boardroom
  • made recommendations on what government and business could do to increase the proportion of women on corporate boards

To achieve the objective of seeing more women recruited to boardroom positions, it is evident that action needed to be taken to increase the demand for women by chairs and executive search firms but also to expand the pool of female candidates by increasing the number of women reaching the executive layer of management and the number of women leaders from outside the corporate world ready to play a role on corporate boards.
We developed ten recommendations to generate momentum behind, and increase focus on, this business priority.
