Why Aren’t Boards Diversifying Faster?


The findings in this report underscore the main reasons progress on board refreshment and diversity remains slow: average director tenure continues to be quite long, board seats rarely become vacant and, when a spot is available, it is often taken by a seasoned director rather than a newcomer with no prior board experience.

The report documents corporate governance trends and developments at 2,854 companies registered with the SEC that filed their proxy statement between January 1 and November 1, 2018 and, as of January 2018, were included in the Russell 3000 Index, as well as select findings from 494 companies listed in the S&P 500.
