Matthew Fell, CBI Chief UK Policy Director, said:
“While some FTSE firms have made measurable progress when it comes to ethnic diversity in the boardroom, the bottom line is business has to significantly up its game.

“It is an essential first step that every FTSE company shares their data with the Review – there are no excuses for not doing so.”
