The Gender Gap in Nonprofit Boardrooms
The Women’s Nonprofit Leadership Initiative (WNLI) and The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University’s School of Business are proud to announce the release of the first census of women board members of the 50 largest medical and educational institutions in Greater Philadelphia. The Gender Gap in Nonprofit Boardrooms is the first in-depth analysis of gender diversity on the boards of these major regional nonprofit institutions.
This research launches the first of what we hope will be a triennial look at the gender and racial composition of the boards of the largest 25 healthcare and 25 largest higher education nonprofits in our region. We want to encourage these 50 premiere nonprofit organizations, as well as all nonprofits in the region, regardless of budget and mission, to move to a gender and racial balance that is reflective of their constituencies and the larger communities of which they are a part.
