The Women Joining Public Boards report shows the numbers, rate and profiles of women appointed to public boards with a focus on diversity and analysis of the industry sectors where women are participating on boards. This first report covers October 2020 as this is the first time the comprehensive data for women joining boards of public companies has been compiled and analyzed.
