For the first time, Catalyst takes its “2014 Catalyst Census: Women Board Directors” global, as the call for gender equality on boards grows worldwide. The new and expanded Census focuses on women’s share of board seats at stock market index companies across three regions and 20 countries, including the United States, Canada, Europe (14 countries), and Asia-Pacific (Australia, Hong Kong, India, and Japan). Among the findings: Women hold 19.2% of S&P 500 board seats in the U.S., while in Europe women’s share of board seats ranges from 18.5% in Germany to 22.8% in the U.K. to 35.5% in Norway.
