2020 Women on Boards conducts research studies about the gender composition of the boards of directors of US companies.

The cornerstone of the 2020 Women on Boards campaign is the 2020 Gender Diversity Directory, a database of public and private companies that we categorize based on the gender composition of their boards.

A subset of the 2020 Directory is the 2020 Gender Diversity Index (GDI) which is based on the Russell 3000 Index. We track this group of companies from year to year, measuring the percentage of board seats held by women. Utilizing the same list from year to year allows us to more accurately measure progress.
