The numbers show that Catalyst CEO Champions For Change companies are outpacing their global peers in advancing women. In fact, they have a higher percentage of women in leadership positions at every level compared to their global peers—more women board directors, executives, senior managers, and managers. In addition, Champion companies are outperforming their peers in advancing women of color, a particularly underrepresented group. They have a stronger pipeline of women of color in manager positions, and they are ahead of their peers in promoting these women into the executive ranks. Our Champion companies really shine in the boardroom, where the percentage of women of color on their boards is higher than it is on S&P 200 boards.
