Boardrooms Still Lack Women
July 10, 2014 1:02 PM   Subscribe

Gender_Map by Data Morphosis and TWO-N demonstrates that women make up just 10.7% of all US company board members. They are best represented at Avon, where more than half the board is female. Eighteen S&P 500 companies have male directors exclusively. (Via Forbes, where the article is adorned with a pink [!] bar graph.)

Better post title: M&M/Mars Needs Women. Ah well.

I did the same, and the autoprefetch in my brain started writing the snarky comment i'd post on some sort of update about this.

It's interesting that big corporations appear to be doing a better job on board diversity than small corporations. If I'm reading the infographic correctly, 23.3% of DJIA board members are female, while only 11.9% of S&P Small Cap 600 board members are. My DJIA employer is ~30%.

Just wait till someone documents how many Women Owned Small Businesses are primarily owned and operated by guys who put their wife's name on the paperwork.
