Trinity Laban listed in top 5 for having “gender-balanced” Board

The Times Higher Education Supplement has published a survey showing a lack of female governor representation in universities - but Trinity Laban is listed in the top 5 for having a 50% gender-balanced Board.

Just 32 per cent of governors in UK higher education and only 12 per cent of council chairs are female, according to an audit of governing bodies by WomenCount, a non-profit organisation benchmarking women's leadership across the charitable, academic and public spheres.

Only 31 of the 166 institutions assessed - 19 per cent - achieve a "gender-balanced" board of at least 40 per cent female governors, says the report, titled WomenCount: Leaders in Higher Education, published on 4 December.

Trinity Laban Principal, Professor Anthony Bowne, commented: "It is good to be recognised for the gender balance we have achieved on our Board - it is also the balance we have on the senior management team - but a sad indictment of our sector that a 50:50 split puts us in the top 5 of 166 institutions."
