Women are still being ignored for boardroom positions on
SmallCap companies, according to a survey by Deloitte.
The firm conducted a study of listed companies with market capitalisation
above £100m and found that only 3% of current board members in
companies and 5% in FTSE SmallCap companies are female, compared to 6% in
FTSE 250 companies and
10% in the FTSE 100.
Despite the massive gender imbalance, AIM leads the way when it comes to
youth in the boardroom. Over a third of executive directors in AIM companies are
under the age of 45 compared to only around a quarter in FTSE SmallCap and none
in FTSE 250 companies, Deloitte found.
