Davies Review

Is out, and recommends a target of 25% female representation on FTSE100 boards by 2015. I reckon only about 10% of them meet that now, but many could reach it with just one female appointment. Given typical turnover in board membership this seems pretty reasonable over four years. Big worry would be if they try and meet the target solely through NED appointments who are then given the 'girly' CSR committee to chair.

BIS is quite an interesting dept to follow really, innit?
