In January 2015, Catalyst released its 2014 Global Census report on the percentage of women sitting on public companies’ boards of directors. The report revealed that the percentage of women on Canadian boards increased to 20.8% in 2014, from 13.1% in 2011. While the 2014 report only analyzed the number of women on the boards of the companies listed on the S&P/TSX 60, Catalyst’s findings are promising.
