2020 Women on Boards

2020 Women on Boards (2020WOB) is a global education and advocacy campaign committed to building awareness and momentum toward the goal of achieving at least 20% of all public company board seats to be held by women by the year 2020. Founded in Boston in 2010 and now headquartered in Los Angeles, 2020WOB is redefining good corporate governance, gender diversity standards and creating a cultural imperative for corporate action.

 

2020 Women on Boards is well known for its research on the gender composition of boards of directors, including its proprietary Gender Diversity Directory, a first-of-its-kind online resource of over 3,100 public and private companies categorized by the gender composition of their boards of directors. 2020WOB congratulates companies for achieving or surpassing the 20% goal and encourages companies that don't to do better.

 

Among the campaign's signature programs, the National Conversation on Board Diversity is an annual event held every November in over thirty U.S. and international cities, which encourages public discourse on the best practices for boardroom diversity and lays out strategies for women to become board-ready.

 

2020 Women on Boards is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
