Following a review of FTSE leadership gender balance, Retail Week looks at how the retail industry is faring.

In 2016 the Hampton-Alexander review set a target for 33% of leadership positions in all the FTSE 350 companies to be held by women, but with just over a year to hit that target there is still a long way to go.
