30% / ESMT master Women's Scholarship
The 30% Club is a global gender diversity campaign which aims to increase the number of women on boards, and throughout the pipeline. It started in the UK in 2010 with a goal of achieving a minimum of 30% women on FTSE-100 boards -- currently the figure stands at 26.1% up from 12.5%. The 30% Club aims to develop a diverse pool of talent for all businesses through the efforts of its Chair and CEO members, who are committed to better gender balance at all levels of their organizations. Business leadership is key to the 30% Club mission, taking the issue beyond a specialist diversity effort and into mainstream talent management.
