Black representation at top of FTSE 100 companies falls to zero | Financial Times

The number of black people at the top of Britain’s biggest listed companies has fallen to zero, despite public commitments to increase diversity in leadership. Research by Green Park, a recruitment and diversity consultancy, shows that no black chairs, chief executives or chief financial officers remain at any FTSE 100 company, following a change of leadership at the packaging group Mondi and the exit from the index of the cruise operator Carnival. This means that despite a small increase in the numbers from other ethnic minority groups in these top positions, there has been no progress overall in ethnic minority representation since the consultancy began compiling numbers six years ago. Just 10 out of 297 leaders in the top three roles had ethnic minority backgrounds, the same proportion as in 2014.
