Raj Tulsini, CEO of executive search and interim management firm Green Park, is interviewed on London Live regarding the disappointing findings of Green Park’s latest report, Local Government Leadership 2018.
The report analyses gender and thnocultural representation in both Chief Executive and Chief Officer roles across Local Authorities. It assesses diversity trends within senior leadership positions, enabling authorities to measure their progress in creating inclusive senior teams that better reflect their wider workforce and communities they serve.
Green Park’s Local Government Leadership 2018 report reveals women are still significantly underrepresented at senior management level in Local Government, accounting for just 39 per cent of all senior positions across the UK’s Unitary Authorities, County Councils, Metropolitan Boroughs, London Boroughs and District Councils.
Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) leaders are also found to be chronically underrepresented. Across the Top 20 senior management positions in Local Government organisations, just 3.7 per cent are held by BAME leaders compared to 7.1 per cent in the FTSE 100.
