Founded in 2011, the Thirty Percent Coalition is a unique and groundbreaking national organization committed to the goal of women, including women of color, holding 30% of board seats across public companies.
Today, more than 80 members are working together, for the first time, driving the pace of change — public and private companies, private equity, professional service firms, institutional investors, government officials, national advocacy and non profit organizations, and individuals.
The Coalition works on the demand side of board diversity – influencing corporations to strengthen their efforts to increase the number of women on their boards. There is no other organization of this kind in the United States.
Significant milestones have been achieved with the Coalition’s commitment to action-oriented strategies. For example, following the Coalition’s Institutional Investor’s “Adopt a Company Campaign”, more than 115 companies to date, and most for the first time, have appointed a woman to their boards.
Many of our members work on the supply side of the mission, advocating for and supporting women and minority senior executives. These members provide resources to companies for board candidates.
