Women make up only a quarter of executive boards at top accountancy firms

An online employee referral recruitment platform has analysed data from the top 25 accountancy firms in the UK and claims that women make up just a quarter of the executive boards, however statistics show that women made up 44 percent of full-time accountants in the UK. The research conducted by Real Links also claims that only two of the top 25 firms boards are nearly equal in the gender split and a further six boards were only one third women. Four executive boards had no women on them at all in 2014.

Sam Davies, CEO and co-founder of Real Links, said, “While statistics show that the accounting industry has a relatively even split between men and women, it seems women are still struggling to climb to the top of their firms. The top 25 accountancy firms need to ensure they’re leading by example to try and close the gender split at the most senior levels in their industry.”
