The U.S. 30% Club launched in June 2014 with a goal of achieving 30% female directors on S&P 100 boards by 2020. Surpassing our goal, as of March 2021 30.47% of S&P 100 board directors are women, up from 20.2% at launch. Additionally, all S&P 100 boards have at least one female director. Even more encouraging, the U.S. membership has achieved an average of 33.70% women on their boards, up from 21.7% when it launched – a testament to what business leaders are able to achieve when they commit to driving change.
While we’ve achieved our target representation of female directors on S&P 100 boards, there is still much work to be done in boardrooms across the country, with S&P 500 numbers moving at a glacial pace.
