Study Finds Only Modest Gains by Women and Minorities on Fortune 500 Boards
February 2017. The New York Times.
“Women and minorities occupy nearly 31 percent of the board seats of Fortune 500 companies, a small increase over the last four years, a new study has found. While that is the highest level in the six years of the study, white men continue to hold more than two-thirds of the positions. The data for 2016 — from the Alliance for Board Diversity, an association of groups promoting inclusion of women and minorities in boardrooms, and Deloitte, a professional services firm — underscores that companies have made only incremental progress in promoting diversity in boardrooms.”
