Women Count 2016

In 2016, The Pipeline conducted its first research into the FTSE 350 to analyse the state of gender diversity at executive and board level.

"This is a highly valuable report as it is the only one tracking the number of women on executive committees in the FTSE 350 and their resulting economic impact."
Donald Brydon - Chairman, London Stock Exchange Group
