In terms of gender diversity, women currently hold 4.4% of chief executive positions at Standard & Poor 500 companies according to 2015 research by Catalyst. The situation is even more dire for African-Americans, with only five occupying the role of CEO in Fortune 500 firms. There has been relatively little progress for Hispanics in terms of board appointments.
