In a joint foreword to Cranfield University School of Management’s Female FTSE Board Report 2015, Vince Cable, UK Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, and Nicky Morgan, Secretary of State for Education, and Minister for Women and Equalities, struck a positive, verging on a celebratory, note: ‘Since the publication of the Davies Review in 2011, we have made huge strides in gender diversity in our top companies. We have almost doubled women’s representation and ended all-male boards in the FTSE 100. This is a credit to the leadership and determination of so many business leaders … With women’s representation at 23.5% in the FTSE 100, we are so very close to the 2015 target.’
