Regardless of political affiliation, the election of Kamala Harris as Vice President is an important milestone in America’s journey towards gender parity in the workforce. An important aspect of attaining this goal is rising female representation of women on Boards of Directors. The board of directors for a publicly traded company is an elected group of officials that represent shareholders as a governing body, meeting at regular intervals to set policies for corporate management and oversight – private companies of scale and nonprofit organizations can also utilize a board of directors to oversee growth, direction, and goals. Needless to say, tracking the number of women on corporate boards is an important barometer in evaluating the progress of gender parity in the labor force.
