This multi-year study published by the Alliance for Board Diversity (ABD), in collaboration with Deloitte, provides powerful metrics on the slow change of diversity in the boardroom, and guides corporations and advocates toward future improvements in minority and women board participation.
Founded in 2004, the Alliance for Board Diversity (ABD) is a collaboration of four leadership organizations: Catalyst, The Executive Leadership Council (ELC), the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR), and LEAP (Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics). Diversified Search, an executive search firm, is a founding partner of the alliance and serves as an advisor and facilitator. The ABD’s mission is to enhance shareholder value in Fortune 500 companies by promoting inclusion of women and minorities on corporate boards.
