McDonald's look for gender parity by 2030

McDonald's has set a goal of having an equal number of men and women in leadership roles by 2030 as it looks to improve diversity at the company.
The fast-food chain also said it would work to boost minority representation in the firm's senior US ranks from 29% to 35% over the next four years.
Executive pay will be tied to meeting the targets.
The effort follows claims of racial discrimination from black franchisees and executives in the US.
Workers have also accused the firm of fostering "systemic sexual harassment" at its restaurants.
McDonald's has disputed the allegations. But in July, amid widespread Black Lives Matter protests in the US, the firm announced a new diversity, equity and inclusion initiative.
In November, the firm brought on a new person to lead implementation of the effort.
