“Advancing Women to the Corporate Boardroom” Research Report

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 18 novembre 2019

Women in Technology (WIT), the premier organization contributing to the success of professional women in the technology community in the Washington, D.C. area, along with American University, today announced that our region experienced a dip in the number of women serving on publicly traded corporate boards in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Each year, The Leadership Foundry, a signature program of WIT, and American University publish a research report on gender diversity on the region’s corporate boards.The Leadership Foundry’s 9th annual report, “Advancing Women to the Corporate Boardroom,” provides in-depth analysis of the number of women board members from 162 publicly traded companies headquartered in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC.Most notably, the 2019 research reveals:
Women hold 15.75% (231) of the 1467 board seats at publicly held companies in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. region. This is a 0.05 percentage point decrease from the 2018 study.
Of the 162 companies surveyed, 14.8% (24) had a critical mass of women (three or more) serving as board directors, representing a slight decrease in the number of companies from the 2018 study.
The trend from 2010 to 2019 continues to show companies in our region slowly, but steadily adding women to their boards. In 2019, there were 32 companies in the entire region with no women serving on their board, down from 34 in 2018.
The number of women in power positions on corporate boards shows that 6% of the companies with critical mass have at least one woman in a power position. This year is the first time the report has counted this information across all companies. Eight of these companies, or 33%, have two women in power positions.
