msciEXECUTIVE SUMMARY

A growing body of research shows that having three women on a corporate board represents a “tipping point” in terms of influence, which is reflected in financial performance. Our analysis from last year looked at a snapshot of global companies in 2015 with strong female leadership, finding that they enjoyed a Return on Equity of 10.1% per year versus 7.4% for those without such leadership

mercer “When Women Thrive is a call to organizations and leaders to think and act differently to advance gender diversity. It is a business imperative with deep and profound social implications — an imperative that every business leader needs to personally drive. Now is the time for us to take action.”

...we find that banks with more gender diversity on their board perform better once the composition of these boards reaches a critical level of gender diversity, corresponding to a board female share of around 13-17 percent.
