Honor and Shame

Catalyst's 2008 reports on women on boards and women corporate officers was released this week. Among the information they released were lists of companies with over 25% women on boards and women corporate officers. The honor role includes these companies which are in the top 25 on both lists:
  • Kraft Foods
  • Macy's
  • Office Depot
Something to think about when you spend your dollars.

There are over 90 companies that have 25% or more women corporate officers and over 70 that have 25% or more women directors.

The halls of shame (companies with no women directors or no women corporate officers) include these well-known companies:
  • Hertz
  • Fidelity National Financial
  • GMAC
  • Hershey
  • Apple (darn, I LOVE Apple!)
  • Blockbuster
  • DELL
For links to the complete lists go here for corporate officers and here for directors.

I am conscious about where I spend my dollars...try to support women-owned businesses and woman-led corporations when I can. We have tremendous purchasing power. If we all thought about this, the pressure to promote women and name women to boards would be phenomenal.
