    New tool recognising high-achieving women in business

    The Financial Times Non Executive Directors’ Club has partnered with the European Business Schools/Women on Board Initiative to create a database identifying high-achieving women in business.

    The extensive database sits on global business platform, LinkedIn, and allows corporations and executive search companies to search a number of notable business women. It is managed by the Financial Times Non Executive Directors’ (NED) Club, which leads the way in supporting non-executives, offering them a variety of networking opportunities and providing up to date information on corporate governance issues.

    Members of the FT NED Club can also take part in the FT NED Certificate, a mix of physical workshops and digital learning that aims to increase diversity on UK boards.
