IoD chief wants to see more women on boards
The Institute of Directors has called on companies to put more women on boards in 2012.
In his New Year's message, director-general Simon Walker stressed there were "still too few women in the boardroom".
The IoD's seven main board directors are all men.
Meanwhile, Tesco director Lucy Neville-Rolfe said: "In the past four years, the number of female directors in Tesco's businesses around the world is up 70% to 103."
