Progress

This website is a location to track the process and progress of increasing female leadership on corporate boards of directors, making sure each board has at least one woman on it, and holds companies with all male board members accountable for the systematic exclusion of women.

According to recent data from S&P Global Market Intelligence that came out in March 2016, 24 Fortune 500 companies currently have no women on their boards. This list is embarrassing and needs to change.

Discovery Communications

We started a petition movement that makes a fiscal and social case for taking initial steps toward gender equality on boards. Our efforts targeting Discovery Communications included a petition on change.org, letters to the company executives and social media campaigns to address the upsetting, but real data.  We are happy to announce that 6 months later, Discovery Communications has added a woman to their Board of Directors!
