In the Parker Review Report in 2017, a target was set for every FTSE 100 company to have at least one director from a minority ethnic group on its Board by 2021. In addition, FTSE 250 companies were set a target to have at least one director from a minority ethnic group on their Boards by 2024.
In this session David Tyler – the new Chair of the review – will present the key findings of the latest, 2022, report and explore how succession planning, talent management and other initiatives can help ensure that talented people from minority ethnic groups can have successful careers at every level in companies, up to and including in the boardroom.
Moni Mannings, Non-Executive Director and Chair of Remuneration at FTSE 100 company Hargreaves Lansdown and NYSE Listed company Cazoo, will join David in discussing the latest report findings and plans for the future of the review.
The Parker Review enjoys support from the government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Rachel Askew-Sammut, Head of Leadership Diversity and Timothy Deller, Senior Policy Advisor will also be in attendance.
Finally, there will be an opportunity to ask any questions of the Parker team.
