No Seat or Voice at the Decision Table

Since 2004, the Alliance for Board Diversity has been conducting a census of Fortune 100 board of directors to gauge the inclusion of women and minorities. In the decade since their studies began, and despite many so called  ERG and diversity “initiatives,”  the composition of Fortune 100 and 500 board rooms has not changed.

According to their latest study, the Alliance for Board Diversity Census reports that white men comprise nearly 70% of the 1,214 Fortunte 100 board seats. Overall, Latinos constitute only 4.3% of board seats as compared to 83% for whites.  The representation of minority women is even worse.

Have a great day!
