Women on Boards: Policies, Processes, Returns

 “Mining the Metrics of Board Diversity” Report

While numerous organizations have undertaken campaigns to increase the number of women on their boards, it looks like there is more work to be done. In fact, 2012 data shows that although 59% of the 4,100 global companies in our analysis have any women on their boards, just 17% report greater than 20% of their board members are women.

 

Some report highlights include:

  • Technology, Industrials and Non-Cyclical Consumer Goods & Services companies lead in gender-diverse boards by segment.
  • By region, EMEA leads, with companies in the Americas close behind.

 

Don’t miss the chance to get more alpha-generating insights on this critical topic and explore the impact of greater gender diversity on the global economy.
