The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) recently outlined three new diversity targets for U.K.-listed companies, including a goal for boards to be at least 40% female. That goal is not far off from where figures stand today, with women making up 35% of boards in the FTSE 250.
Weighing in on the new targets is Dr. Grace Lordan, director of The Inclusion Initiative. The Inclusion Initiative operates out of The London School of Economics and brings behavioral science insights to companies to help them foster more inclusive environments. The institute also has a robust research agenda to study the key obstacles that stand in the way of progress of inclusion at work.
