The Parker Review sets a target for all FTSE 100 companies to appoint ethnic minority members by 2021.
FTSE 100 boards should have at least one member from an ethnic minority by 2021—and FTSE 250 companies by 2024—according to the latest report from the Parker Review.
The report also calls for improved transparency and disclosure to ensure progress against the targets is properly tracked. A third recommendation calls on companies to develop a pipeline of talent ready for boardroom roles.
The report comes from Sir John Parker, originally part of the Davies Review looking at boardroom diversity, who has been examining ethnic minority representation at the highest levels in the UK’s largest companies.
