July 2017. IT Business Net.

“Representing more than $3.2 trillion in assets under management, the Thirty Percent Coalition’s institutional investors are committed to increasing diversity in the public company boardroom. Following the Coalition’s Adopt a Company Campaign which began in January 2012, 151 companies have now appointed a woman to their boards. The appointment of a woman, and in many instances a woman of color, was a first for most of these companies. Thirty-one new companies diversified their boards, representing a 27% increase since the Coalition last reported in October 2016. Contributing to this increase, Coalition members California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) and UAW Retiree Medical Benefits Trust(Michigan) added to the growth of diverse boards through their state initiatives with regional publicly listed companies.”
