Person | Profile
Helena Morrissey is the founder of the 30% Club, an initiative to maximize gender diversity on corporate boards. Since 2010, the percentage of women on FTSE-100 boards has increased to 26.1% from 12%. The initiative will continue to further its vision that "gender balance on boards not only encourages better leadership . . . but contributes to better all-around board performance," according to the website. Morrissey also serves as the CEO of Newton Investment Management in the U.K., managing more than 400 employees—which she says is not unlike raising her family of nine children.
