Finding Women More Seats at the Board Table | U.S. Chamber of Commerce

The Chamber of Commerce has endorsed proposed legislation that would establish an advisory group within the Securities and Exchange Commission to produce a study on gender diversity among corporate directors and make recommendations on how to promote gender equality on boards.

It would also require public companies to report the gender of board directors and nominees. The Chamber says:

“The bill’s goal of promoting gender diversity in the boardroom of American businesses reflects the reality that women, who historically have been statistically underrepresented among corporate boards of directors, possess invaluable insights, experiences, and management skills that can and should be deployed to support the corporate goals of our nation’s producers, innovators, and employers.”
