Report Shows That The Percentage Of Women At The Boardroom Tables Has Dropped

A  new report has shown that the percentage of women who secured seats at the boardroom tables of Nigeria’s most valuable companies has dropped this year. 

The fourth edition of the report titled ‘2023 PWR NGX Top 30 Gender Diversity Scorecard’ by PWR Advisory, an inclusion and sustainability advisory firm in Africa, showed a marginal decline in the number of female board directors to 27.4 percent in July 2023 compared to 27.9 percent last year.

According to the report, although this year’s scorecard has been expanded to cover the NGX top 30 and not just the 20 largest companies per previous years, the data tells the same story. The pace of change is slow and unsatisfactory.

It said in the UK, the representation of women on the boards of FTSE 350 companies now stands at an impressive 40.2 percent, as revealed in the 2023 FTSE Women Leaders Report.

A breakdown of the report revealed that 72.6 percent of the directors at the NGX 30 companies are men. “46.7 percent of the companies have at least 30 percent female board representation. Last year, 50 percent of the top 20 companies met this criteria.”

It added that of all the companies featured in the report over the last four years, nine in particular have recorded significant improvements in the numbers of women on their boards.
