Debating women on comapny boards – interview for Radio 4 Today Programme

Labour Party

This morning I was interviewed for BBC radio 4 Today Programme about the plan to introduce EU legislation which will address the issue of the number of women, or rather the lack of women, who sit on company boards.

I support the legislation and explained, during the debate with the 30% club’s Helen Morrissey, there is a disparity between the percentage of female graduates and women who get to sit at the top of company boards.

I also debated the issue on BBC radio 2 Jeremy Vine Show, with Dame Ann Leslie. You can listen to the whole show by following the link here or just my segment by using the audio player below.
