UK: Parker review report - the ethnic diversity of company boards

The Parker Review final report concerning the ethnic diversity of UK boards has been published and makes recommendations to increase the ethnic diversity of boards: see here (pdf). A target is set of all FTSE100 boards having at least one director of colour by 2021, and all FTSE250 boards by 2024. The report notes that of the total population of FTSE100 directors, only 2% are UK citizen directors of colour and 51 of the FTSE100 companies do not have any directors of colour.
