British businesses are taking "real strides" to improve gender parity in the boardroom, Denise Wilson, chief executive of the Davies Review steering group, has said.
Her comments come as a new report suggests women now account for 20.7% of board members in the FTSE 100 firms, up from 12.5% in 2011.
Ms Wilson added that this increase is being reflected in the improving attitude of boards towards the women in their organisation as a whole.
