The supplement compiled by Cranfield University’s School of Management highlights the impressive talent pool of female business leaders and board members of the future.

The Women to Watch 2020 is launched alongside the Female FTSE Board Report, an annual analysis of women on boards.

Female leaders of the future

Along with serving our board, Emmy is a member of the Conduct Committee of the Financial Reporting Council and is Chair of the Employer Committee of the Social Housing Pension Scheme.

Reflecting on the lessons learned during her career, Emmy said: “Don’t worry too much about short-term setbacks - be committed and ambitious but be prepared for things to go wrong from time to time.”

Inspiring change

This year, 100 leading female professionals were chosen for consideration as non-executive directors (NEDs) on the boards of FTSE350 companies, now or in the near future.  

Introduced in 2009, Women to Watch aims to challenge assumptions about the type of woman suited to a board position. During the last two decades, significant improvements have been made in gender representation in the workplace. This insightful supplement both highlights and celebrates the female talent pool.

We would like to congratulate Emmy on this fantastic achievement.
