• 20.4% of board seats of the largest companies globally are now held by women, up from 18.5% in 2016.

• With the rate of progress towards parity decelerating, and with nearly three quarters of all new appointments still going to men, fully balanced boards will never be achieved without a significant increase in the hiring of female directors.
