Sisters of the Holy Family, along with institutional investors representing more than $3 trillion in assets under management, sent letters to 100 companies in the Russell 1000 Index that lack women on their boards of directors, urging them to embrace gender diversity.
Women held only 16.9 percent of board seats in 2013-no change from 2012 916.6 percent.
In both 2012 and 2013, less than one fifth of companies had 25 percent or more women directors, while one-tenth had no women serving on their boards.
Less than one-quarter of companies had three or more women directors serving together in both 2012 and 2013.
We are asking companies to work with us to bring these numbers from where they are today – with women holding somewhere from 12 to 16 percent of corporate board seats – to a national average of 30 per cent by the end of 2015.
