British business at risk from 'diversity deficit' finds report
New research into the top 10,000 executives in Britain’s most important firms reveals a widening “diversity deficit” which, it maintains, risks putting UK companies at a disadvantage in domestic and global markets.
The Green Park Leadership 10,000, Spring 2015 shows that the position of ethnic minorities in leadership roles within the FTSE 100 has declined over the past year. Despite an increased corporate focus on diversity, just under two thirds of FTSE Companies (62) now have an all-white Main Board (Executive and Non-Executive Directors), up from last year (61).
The study is the second report on the top leadership levels within the FTSE 100, commissioned by the executive recruitment consultancy Green Park.
