The 30% Club was established in the UK in 2010, with a goal of achieving 30 per cent women on FTSE 100 boards by the end of 2015 in order to create a more balanced and diverse workforce. When the initiative was first launched the figure stood at just 12.5 per cent. Today it stands at 26 per cent. These significant results have been achieved by encouraging chairmen to appoint more women to boards, and by supporting businesses in implementing schemes to improve diversity at all levels within their organisation.

Cambridge Judge Business School and Level 20 are carrying out ground-breaking research of individuals' career paths in the European private equity industry. The objective of the survey is to gather information from a very large number of industry participants, which will help us understand the unique career progressions of executives in the private industry and the various factors that shape this progression. The results of the survey will be analysed by the researchers at the School. Level 20 and Cambridge Judge will publish a report for the private equity industry later this year.
