Linda Jones and Catherine Workman, Partners at international law firm Pinsent Masons, have been included in the ‘100 Women to Watch’ list 2016 and are the only lawyers featured.

Now in its seventh year, the alphabetical list compiled by the Cranfield School of Management aims to "showcase the broad and deep female talent pool" for FTSE 350 companies to draw from for non-executive director positions. It was first launched in the 2009 Female FTSE Board Report.

Alongside her international employment work and her eight-year term on the Remuneration and Partnership Committee, Linda is recognised for her leadership of Sky – aiming to create a better gender balance in the partnership and senior leadership team in order to create a better workplace for all. Linda's work in this area led to her being shortlisted in the 'Inclusive Leader: Gender Champion' category at the Opportunity Now Gender Equality Awards 2016.

Catherine is recognised for her current Board and Nominations Committee roles, as well as her position on the board of the British Aviation Group – a body created to promote the expertise of its members in the international aviation space. Her work on the delivery of major pieces of infrastructure in Europe and the Middle East, and advising governments and private sector sponsors on pathfinding projects are also highlighted.
