2020 Women on Boards is a nonprofit education and advocacy campaign (not a membership organization) that informs the public and collaborates with corporations to achieve greater numbers of women directors on corporate boards. When 2020WOB was founded ten years ago, our original goal was to see 20% of board seats filled by women by the year 2020 — the milestone 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote. Through our campaign, and efforts of like-minded advocates across the country, that goal was achieved as of September 2019 — one year ahead of schedule! However, nearly one-tenth of all public companies in the U.S. still have NO WOMEN on their boards of directors, despite studies showing that having women directors improves corporate performance and profitability.
