Abstract

Companies have come under pressure within the last decade to appoint more women and minorities to their boards of directors. This pressure has come from institutional investors such as state retirement associations, individuals such as a Catholic nun, women’s rights activist organizations such as Catalyst, and scholars who work in the area of women on corporate boards.
