Redefining CHRO Diversity
by Ami Ophelia-Brown & Mollie Rochelle
In today’s corporate landscape, the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) plays a pivotal role in shaping organisational culture, promoting diversity, and fostering inclusion. However, a stark and disconcerting reality exists; executive human resources officers often lack the diversity that should be reflective of our increasingly global and multicultural society.
Key findings included in the report:
- More than 60% of Fortune 100 and FTSE 100 companies have a woman in the CHRO position
- 23% of CHROs from Fortune 100 companies are (perceived to be) ethnically diverse
- 8% of CHROs from FTSE 100 companies are (perceived to be) ethnically diverse
This report explores topics such as representation in HR leadership, the historical mechanics behind today's CHRO archetype, how diversity at the top has a trickle down effect, the relationship between the CHRO and the CDO, and how HR leaders can drive diversity.
