The 30% Club runs a number of very specific and targeted initiatives that look to broaden the pipeline of women at all levels, from schoolroom to boardroom. It is made up of a group of business leaders committed to achieving better gender balance at all levels of organisations. It is a global opportunity for businesses to improve the way they perform by encouraging talented females into leadership positions. The 30% club has impacted on firms around the world and engages in activities spanning the school room to the boardroom. The group aims to reach a 30% female gender balance on Irish boards and executive management level by 2020.
