Since its inception in 2004, The Leaderboard has analyzed domestic public companies of all sizes to track the progression of women in the corporate boardroom. In our 2015 report, we noted that only 14.1% of board seats in the Russell 3000 were held by women. We’ve made meaningful strides since 2015, with 50/50 Women on Boards reporting that 29.2% of Russell 3000 board seats were occupied by women as of September 30, 2023. Additionally, 36.5% of the 455 new directors who joined boards in Q3 2023 were women.
The Leaderboard brings a unique perspective to these findings, with many of its member organizations publishing similar research, but at a regional level where our member organizations serve their local communities. Below are the research findings from our member organizations. For additional reporting from prior years, see the Archived Reports link at the bottom of this page.
