The 2010 Catalyst Census: Fortune 500 Women Board Directors examines women’s representation in corporate governance at the largest companies in the United States. This annual report provides critical statistics to gauge women’s advancement into leadership and highlights the gender diversity gap.

Each year Catalyst tracks:

  • Women’s share of all board seats and of positions of board leadership

  • The representation of women of color directors

  • The percentage of companies with zero to three or more women and women of color directors

The appendices provide additional points of comparison by Fortune rank, region, and industry and list companies with the highest and lowest representation of women board directors.
