Lord Karan Bilimoria, CBI President and Chair of Change the Race Ratio, said:
“FTSE 100 firms have made real headway when it comes to ethnic diversity at the top. It’s clear to see they’ve stepped up despite the challenges of Covid-19. Now we need to see those last few firms do what the large majority have done already and end the all-white boardroom.
“This is an important milestone, but not job done. Companies need to keep up momentum with actions to improve ethnic diversity at every level, developing talented future leaders from across society.
“Our Change the Race Ratio campaign exists to help businesses to improve, not only to measure their progress, so I encourage all companies to sign up.”
