Company boards take 'real strides' towards gender parity

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.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Wednesday 26 March.
