Board Diversity: Time’s Up on Good Intentions

Article

by Julie Gorte, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Impax Aseet Management and Pax World Funds 

When I began working to make boards more gender diverse in 2001, the percentage of women on the boards of large companies in the United States was around 12 percent. By 2011, women had gained a few more seats at the table, and by 2016 women held 21 percent of board seats at Fortune 500 companies. At this rate of progress — less than one percent increase per year — it will be three more decades before big companies’ boards achieve gender parity. And that, sadly, is the good news.
