Global Board D&I tracker

Developing a global approach to board diversity

Global stakeholder and societal pressure for boardroom diversity reform has been backed by legislative and regulatory developments, and in many jurisdictions there are now specific target ratios for gender and race on corporate boards.

Our Global Board Diversity tracker sets the global context and provides a snapshot of legal and regulatory requirements on a jurisdiction by jurisdiction basis in key financial markets – and consequences for failure to comply.

The provisions are still patchwork – some jurisdictions have specific targets in place, other jurisdictions have stock exchange requirements, and some simply have guidance.

This guide helps to establish next steps for all those involved in benchmarking board diversity.
