Women on Boards: Where are They?

    • In Colorado, only 7% of board seats of publicly traded companies are held by women
    • Nationwide, women hold an average of 16% of board positions
    • Only 12% of non-profits have trained their boards on diversity

    Women on Boards = Increased Performance for Organizations

    When women serve on boards, organizations experience:

    • Improved financial performance
    • Improved governance
    • Higher level of board independence from management
    • Stronger commitment to social responsibility
    • Increased number of women role models in society
