Missing Pieces Report: The 2016 Board Diversity Census of Women and Minorities on Fortune 500 Boards


This study is published by Deloitte in cooperation with the Alliance for Board Diversity (ABD). It analyses diversity on the boards of directors of 98 companies listed on the Fortune 100 index, and 492 companies on the Fortune 500 in the United States, using answers to a questionnaire given to their directors.

The information gives an insight into the representation of ethnic minorities and women over more than a decade, which the authors deem to have continued to grow slowly but steadily, more especially among the Fortune 500 companies.
