2018 Hampton Alexander review

14 November 2018

Emma Codd, managing partner for talent at Deloitte comments on the 2018 Hampton-Alexander Review:

“Today’s findings shows that while progress in boardroom diversity is being made, there is still some way to go.

“I believe that transparency is absolutely vital in terms of driving change and fostering a sense of accountability.

“In 2012, Deloitte set a clear target that by 2020, 25% of our partners will be female, and we have since agreed a longer-term target of 40% female partners by 2030.

“There is no quick fix to diversity in business but corporate culture is by far one of the most important forces in encouraging change - not just at the top but throughout an organisation. Programmes and targets are critical but neither of these on their own will succeed in improving diversity without a culture of inclusion.”
