The UK government is still opposed to EU-imposed quotas over the number of women companies have to employ under new regulations.

Speaking to IBTimes TV at the Women in the City event in London, Prof Susan Vinnicombe, who heads a benchmark government-commissioned Female FTSE Board Report, said Whitehall and the Cranfield School of Management were still largely opposed to "box ticking" quotas.

She added that a lot of progress had been made towards breaking the glass ceiling.

Vinnicombe was one of the panel of judges at this year's Women in the City annual awards ceremony that aims to promotes, recognises and awards female talent.
