#GoodRead | Only 27% Of New Corporate Board Directors Last Year Were Women
Catalyst released its latest census report about women and men’s representation on S&P500 boards last week at the United State of Womensummit in Washington, DC, and the news is discouraging. In 2015, there was very little progress toward gender parity in corporate board positions or executive leadership roles. With the recent attention to diversity, the lack of forward movement is especially disturbing. What is perhaps most notable is the fact that only 27% of the new directors appointed last year were women.
