Abstract

This project examine if the perceived barriers exits to women in bank
sector of FTSE 100 to be in a senior managerial positions. How these
five organisation’s comply with the corporate governance code on
gender diversity and considered recommendations by the corporate
governance code to improve gender diversity within their senior
management to attract more potential investors thus maximizing their
financial status and avoid future financial scandals along with
overcoming any identified barriers that are attached to women’s
progression towards senior management. Although some of the results
presented are acknowledged, the data provided from this study has a
low level of validity and lacks reliability. However, combination of
academic literature and other similar research conducted by female
senior management support agencies such as ILM, Catalyst and Morgan
McKinley can help FTSE 100 banking organisations to develop best
corporate governance practices and improve their talent pool within
senior management.
