UK mandates Women on Company Boards
  • In a move to democratize the financial space, the United Kingdom has innovated to include at least 40 % of women on company Boards. Every Company must have at least one woman, as its Chief Operating Officer, Chief Executive Officer, or another parallel position.
  • As of now, Women in the UK constitute 39.1% of the position on the top management Board. A move to make it mandatory to have 40%, would echo their cause in the financial space.
  • India’s workforce participation is skewed with only 24.9% of women participating. Thus a move like this would push the developing countries to elevate women on the company boards. It will help diversify the work culture and would breed a talented pool of individuals.
