A commission initiated by government in the United Kingdom, first introduced in 2010, to examine the underrepresentation of women on boards. Lord Davies of Abersoch, Minister of State for Trade, Investment and Small Business, spearheaded the review. The final report was submitted in 2015. Women representation on boards more than doubled between 2010 and 2015, reaching 26% (and exceeding the commission’s initial target of 25%.) Together with the Hampton-Alexander Review, the Davies Review formed a cornerstone of the FTSE Women Leaders Review.
