US 30% Club

About US 30% Club

The U.S. 30% Club launched in June 2014 with a goal of achieving 30% female directors on S&P 100 boards by 2020. Today, 24.7% of S&P 100 directors are women, up from 20.2% at launch. Additionally, all S&P 100 boards have at least one female director. Even more encouraging, the US membership has achieved an average of 29% women on their boards, up from 21.9% when it launched – a testament to what business leaders are able to achieve when they commit to driving change.

While the S&P 100 is on track to achieve the 30% target by 2020, there is still much work to be done in boardrooms across the country, with S&P 500 numbers moving at a glacial pace.

As members of US 30% Club, Boyden publicly pledges our support for the notion that it is good business practice to have women holding 30% of board seats and share the aspiration to collectively reach this goal. We are committed to excellence in leadership and value diversity as an essential force towards achieving this commitment.
