Board Diversity: Where Does D.C. Rank?

Women play a major role in corporate leadership and should do more. Yet, the number of women serving on corporate boards in the US remains low. Are we moving the needle in DC?

Join The Leadership Foundry for a discussion about the importance of gender diversity in the corporate boardroom.  Speaker to be announced.

Each year in partnership with the Kogod School of Business at AU, we produce a research report that does a census of the number of women serving on the boards of publicly traded companies in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. The report looks at current literature about the effects of board gender diversity and the current trends. Learn how our region fares and what gains women have made when we unveil the research findings for the eighth year.
