PM Group Becomes 200th Supporter of 30% Club Ireland

PM Group Becomes 200th Supporter of 30% Club Ireland

The 30% Club Ireland has announced that PM Group has signed up as its 200th supporter. The 30% Club is a voluntary movement of international companies which are committed to better gender balance at all levels of business. Comprising of CEOs and Chairs, the Group aims to achieve 30% female representation in senior management by 2020 through collaborative, business-led effort.

Research shows that while 48% of junior management roles in Ireland are held by women, less than one third of executive directors are female. Traditionally, industries involved in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) are especially challenged when it comes to increasing the representation of women at executive and leadership levels.

Headquartered in Ireland, PM Group is an international project delivery company, which operates across Europe, the USA and Asia. It has over 2,300 people worldwide and boasts a 45-year track record in engineering and architecture design, project and construction management for leading multinational companies.  The company is a leader in the pharmaceutical, food, data centre and med-tech sectors.

Carol Andrews, Chair of the 30% Club Ireland and a Managing Director at BNY Mellon Ireland, said: “The 30% Club believes that gender balance on boards and executive leadership not only encourages better leadership and governance, but further contributes to better all-round board performance, and ultimately increased corporate performance for both companies and their shareholders. We are delighted to have PM Group on board and look forward to a fruitful relationship going forward.”

PM Group Chief Executive Dave Murphy commented: “PM Group is really pleased to support the 30% Club Ireland. It is a very important initiative with ambitious goals that are aligned with our own efforts as a company to support and promote female diversity in the work place. We recognise the challenge in particular of achieving better gender balance in the construction sector and want to play an active part in raising awareness and improving representation at all levels in our industry.”

The 30% Club Ireland seeks to gain support from leaders of public, private, state and multinational companies and other interested groups.
