Milestone Reached: No more all-male boards in the FTSE100

The FTSE100 made history today with the news of Glencore Xstrata’s appointment of Patrice Merrin to their board, meaning that there remain no all-male boards in the UK’s top companies. 

The appointment has been welcomed by the Business Secretary Vince Cable and comes as a result of government and business efforts to improve boardroom diversity in the UK following the Lord Davies review of 2011.
