With a target of 25 % of the FTSE 100 board directors to be made up of women by 2015 in mind, Lloyds Banking Group has set up a new scholarship programme. Delivered through the London Business School, the Lloyds MBA Scholarships for Women programme aims to increase the potential of more women to raise to leadership roles in business. There are four scholarships of £30,000 each for four years, starting in 2014. Lloyds has sponsored the First Women Awards for eight years and  has been placed in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women for the last two years.
