'The FTSE 100 Cross-Company Mentoring Programme is beginning to have an impact upon the rate of appointment of women to senior executive and non-executive roles in the UK.

Sir John Parker, Chairman, National Grid plc.
'Ignoring the benefits of having more talented women in the boardroom is bad business. Having more women means extending the portfolio of skills at the top, providing female role models for younger high potential women and guaranteeing that all levels of management are filled with the best executives, and A Woman's Place is in the Boardroom: The Roadmap has some good ideas in all these areas.' Meg Munn, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office
'Increasingly European countries are encouraging their businesses to have more women board members. The UK is ahead of much of Europe but still has more to do.

Peter Erskine, former Chief Executive of O2, non-executive Director of Telefónica
'In business management we are taught that good planning makes for good decisions and that it's the planning, not the plan, that makes the difference.

A Woman's Place is in the Boardroom doesn't just pave the way to solving this, it sorts everything out for you. I really felt stirred reading it.' - Elsa Celab, Human Resources
