Women on Boards Progress Report 2018

MSCI ESG Research has been reporting annually on the state of women’s representation on corporate boards of directors since 2014.  As part of this evolving series we have added other areas of interest, relevant to the investment case for gender equality on boards, the differences in compensation regimes between male and female CEOs, and market specific corporate gender diversity issues, such as in Japan, and industry specific issues, such as those in Financials companies. This latest paper in the series provides an update on the state of female representation on corporate boards and in senior management for MSCI AWCI Index constituents as of October 16, 2018.
