His report ‘Women on boards’ was published in February 2011 and set out 10 recommendations to increase the number of women on boards.

Recommendation 8 of the Davies Report proposed that the executive search community should draw up a voluntary code of conduct to address gender diversity on corporate boards and best practice for the related search processes.

The Voluntary Code of Conduct

Executive recruitment firms can also help their clients increase the proportion of women on their boards and in senior management roles. The ‘Voluntary code of conduct for executive search firms’ recognises this and encourages firms to use the code in their own organisation.

The code sets out 9 principles of best practice on gender equality. These principles cover everything from ‘succession planning’ and writing gender-neutral job descriptions, to supporting candidates and the induction process.

Executive recruitment firms should monitor their own progress and publish a commitment to the code on their website and in other marketing materials.
