Coalition Members

We are the Coalition for U.S board diversity®. Our national and international members work to increase diversity in corporate boardrooms across the US.

The Thirty Percent Coalition was founded in 2011 with these guiding principles:

  • Vision – For senior leadership and boards of directors to reflect the gender, racial and ethnic diversity of the United States workforce.
  • Mission – To advocate for diversity on corporate boards and in senior leadership, promoting women and people of color.
  • Focus – Collaborating with companies to improve their diversity.

Today, gender and racial diversity on corporate boards is taking center stage.

Asset managers, owners, private equity firms and public companies believe that diversity enhances company performance and is an essential element for a high performing board. Many are striving to make the workplace equitable and fair, resulting in enhanced performance and shareholder value. And the overall sentiment is that aiming for social equity is the right thing to do.

Coalition Value Proposition

  • The Coalition provides a national forum where members develop strategies to influence companies to increase diversity in senior leadership and boardrooms.
  • For the first time there is industry-wide collaboration.
  • Coalition membership represents over $8 trillion in assets under management.
