The Female FTSE Report 2022: What Works?

Diversity and equal opportunity at all levels has been a top priority for leading businesses globally over the past decade. In this report, Criticaleye Partner EY supports Cranfield University on its 'Female FTSE Board Report 2022', examining the issue of underrepresentation of women, despite the recent rise in female board members in businesses. 

Key takeaways include:
  • Almost 40% of the directors in the FTSE 100 companies are now women – meeting the target set in the FTSE Women Leaders Review in February this year.
  • The ‘four big roles’ –  CEO, Chair, CFO and SID are the least populated by women, 79 of the 400 roles are held by women. Women Leaders Review set a target of all FTSE 100 companies to have a woman in one of these roles by 2025.
  • With there being 394 board committees across FTSE 100 companies and the number of women into committee chairs increasing to 152 this year, women now occupy 39% of the committee chair roles.
