Women on Boards

07 Mar 2017

The IoD Business Information Service is frequently asked how many female directors there are in the UK.

However this is difficult to ascertain as there are no definite statistics on this. Companies House does not compile statistics on director gender so any information on this topic is usually found in reports or surveys on women directors.  

We have gathered together links to a number of these recent surveys and reports into one factsheet for an overview of gender diversity.
