FTSE firms ‘dragging their feet’ over ethnic diversity on boards | Business | The Guardian

FTSE 100 firms including Tui, British Airways owner IAG and the London Stock Exchange Group have been accused of dragging their feet on diversity targets ahead of a looming 2021 deadline.

Only 53 of Britain’s largest listed firms on the London Stock Exchange have at least one director from an ethnic minority, according to figures compiled for the second annual update on the Parker review. That is a small increase from the 49 companies that had met the target since the review was launched in 2017.

Among the FTSE 100 companies that have failed to take steps to improve diversity are mining firm Glencore, wealth management firm St James’s Place and housebuilders Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon.
