Equilar GDI: Russell 3000 Sees Progress at Glacial Pace in Q3 2020

The percentage of Russell 3000 board members who are women increased slightly in Q3 2020 from 22.9% to 23.1%. The GDI continues to sit at 0.46, representing no change from Q2 2020.

By the end of third quarter 2020, gender diversity across Russell 3000 boardrooms reached an all-time high. The Equilar Gender Diversity Index (GDI) hit 0.46, where 1.0 means gender parity. 23.1% of all board seats were occupied by women. This change represents a 1.2% increase in female board seats from the previous quarter.

While women continue to hold fewer board seats than men, this recent increase reflects a consistent trend towards gender parity that has persisted almost every quarter since Equilar began tracking the GDI in 2016.
