Board diversity reporting

Sealy, R, Page, A, Tilbury, L and Opara, V ORCID: 0000-0002-5148-3204 (2018) Board diversity reporting. Financial Reporting Council.


The majority of the UK’s largest companies have adopted policies on boardroom diversity but their reporting to stakeholders needs to improve. Research conducted for the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) by the University of Exeter Business School shows that only 15% of FTSE100 companies fully complied with the UK Corporate Governance Code’s provision on diversity reporting by describing their policy on diversity, the process for board appointments, their objectives for implementing the policy, and progress on achieving them.
