Board Diversity and Inclusion

Ample research demonstrates that organizations with diverse boards are more innovative and higher-performing. The Center for Women and Business has long been devoted to the effort to advance board diversity. We have a history of collaboration, research, and advocacy with organizations dedicated to this cause, including many of our corporate partners, 2020 Women on Boards, The Boston Club, and MassTLC. To learn more about the impacts and importance of board diversity, we have curated relevant resources and research.

About the Women on Boards Campaign

The 2020 Women on Boards campaign aims to increase the percentage of women on U.S. company boards to 20% or greater by the year 2020. Founded in Boston in 2010, the consumer-oriented, grassroots campaign is redefining good corporate governance, gender diversity standards and creating a cultural imperative for corporate action.
