    2010 saw another year of barely perceptible change in the representation of women in leadership positions of UK PLC’s top 100 companies. The incremental increases include three additional women on FTSE 100 boards taking ...
  • Sealy, Ruth; Vinnicombe, Susan (2012-03-13)
    2012 has seen a step change in the number of women appointed onto FTSE 100 companies following the publication of the Davies Report in February 2011. The number of women holding 163 FTSE 100 board seats is 141, an increase ...
  • Sealy, Ruth; Vinnicombe, Susan (Cranfield University School of Management, 2013-04)
    The last year has seen extraordinary changes for women on boards. The number of women holding FTSE 100 board seats is 169 (holding 194 seats), an increase of 28 on the 2012 figures. The overall percentage of female-held ...

  • Vinnicombe, Susan; Doldor, Elena; Sealy, Ruth; Pryce, Patricia; Turner, Caroline (2015-03-25)
    This year we have seen significant progress on FTSE 100 boards. All-male boards have totally disappeared with Glencore, the last, appointing a woman to its board. The percentage of women on FTSE 100 boards is 23.5%, almost ...
  • Singh, Val; Vinnicombe, Susan (Cranfield University, 2004-11)
  • Singh, Val; Vinnicombe, Susan (2005-01-01)
    Seventy-eight FTSE 100 companies, a new record number, now have women directors, up 13% from last year. But the breakthrough is in who these new female directors are and the diverse experiences they bring to the boardroom. ...
  • Singh, Val; Vinnicombe, Susan (2006-01-01)
    Only 77 FTSE 100 companies now have women directors, down 1% from last year. Five FTSE 100 companies appointed their first ever woman director (Cairn Energy, Rexam, British Land, Reed Elsevier, Shire), but some boards ...
  • Sealy, Ruth; Singh, Val; Vinnicombe, Susan (2007-01-01)
    In 2007, our ninth report, we see a continuing change in the balance of directorships in the FTSE 100 corporate boards. Both the number of executive directorships and total number of directorships are at their lowest ...
  • Terjesen, Siri; Singh, Val (Springer Netherlands, 2008-11)
    A growing body of ethics research investigates gender diversity and governance on corporate boards, at individual and firm levels, in single country studies. In this study, we explore the environmental context of female ...
  • Kelan, Elisabeth; Carr, Melissa (British Academy of Management, 2016-09-08)
    Recent research has highlighted the negative intra-gender relations that occur between women in organisations, focusing on aspects such as micro-violence, the queen bee syndrome, negative intra-gender relations, and ...
  • Korposh, Sergiy; James, Stephen W.; Lee, Seung-Woo; Topliss, Stephen M.; Cheung, Sammy C.; Batty, William J.; Tatam, Ralph P. (Optical Society of America (OSA), 2010-06-07)
    A novel approach to chemical application of long period grating (LPG) optical fibers was demonstrated, which were modified with a film nanoassembled by the alternate deposition of SiO2 nanoparticles (SiO2 NPs) and ...
  • Flannery, D.; James, Stephen W.; Tatam, Ralph P.; Ashwell, Geoffrey J. (Osa Optical Society of America, 1999-12-20)
    Fiber-optic chemical sensing has been demonstrated with a side-polished single- mode optical fiber, evanescently coupled to chemically sensitive Langmuir- Blodgett (LB) overlay waveguides. The sensors exhibit a ...
  • Correia, Ricardo N.; Li, Jin; Staines, Stephen E.; Chehura, Edmon; James, Stephen W.; Tatam, Ralph P.; Kutner, Joel; Dewhurst, Paul; Ferreira, Pedro (International Society for Optical Engineering; 1999, 2009-12-31)
    An effective-soil-pressure sensor for geotechnical applications based on Fibre Bragg Gratings is presented. The sensor simultaneous measures total soil pressure and pore pressure, allowing the calculation of the effective ...
  • Li, Jin; Correia, Ricardo N.; Chehura, Edmon; Staines, Stephen E.; James, Stephen W.; Tatam, Ralph P. (International Society for Optical Engineering; 1999, 2010-12-31)
    The measurement of ground movement is an essential part of many geotechnical engineering operations. For decades, inclinometer systems have traditionally been used for this purpose to provide crucial information to ...
  • Major, B. T.; Tiwari, Divya; Correia, Ricardo; James, Stephen W.; Tirovic, Marko; Tatam, James P. (SPIE, 2017-04-24)
    The use of optical fibre Bragg gratings (FBGs) to monitor the Interface Pressure Distribution (IPD) on an automotive disc brake pad under a variety of loading conditions is studied. The results demonstrate successful strain ...
  • Buggy, Stephen J.; Chehura, Edmon; Skordos, Alexandros A.; Dimopoulos, A.; James, Stephen W.; Partridge, Ivana K.; Tatam, Ralph P. (2007-06-17)
    Optimum performance from advanced composites requires careful control of the resin matrix during cure. This is to ensure there are no cure induced voids and to minimise the build up of internal stresses. Careful control ...
  • Ford, Helen D.; Tatam, Ralph P. (Iop Publishing Ltd, 2007-01-01)
    An imaging fibre bundle is incorporated into a full-field imaging OCT system, with the aim of eliminating the mechanical scanning currently required at the probe tip in endoscopic systems. Each fibre within the imaging ...
  • Flannery, D. (Cranfield University, 1998-04)
    Fibre optic chemical sensing has been demonstrated using side-polished single mode optical bre, evanescently coupled to chemically sensitive Langmuir-Blodgett overlay waveguides. The sensors exhibit a channel dropping ...
  • Casaubieilh, P. (Cranfield University, 2006)
    The aim of the project was to develop the Fizeau interferometer configuration to take advantage of the benefits derived from its “downlead insensitivity” to temperature and polarisation fading. This sensing interferometer ...
