Earlier this year, nine months after its inception, the Charter celebrated reaching 100 signatories. This milestone signifies that industry is not only committed to greater diversity, but that it is also willing to come under greater scrutiny to prove its commitment to attract and recruit more women and then support their progress so they in turn can act as role models for future generations. We look forward to seeing progress being made against the Charters objectives and the difference it makes to industry.
