Board Diversity Gaps: 2022 Modern Leadership Report

| Dottie Schindlinger

The Report

The 2022 Global Modern Leadership Report, authored by Diligent Institute, using data sets from Diligent Governance Intelligence and Insightia, provides in-depth insights into how diversity is progressing on boards worldwide. And while progress continues to be made to drive gender diversity on boards, other diversity measures like race, ethnicity and LGBTQ+ representation fall significantly behind worldwide.

The first-of-its-kind report offers a more comprehensive view of boardroom diversity and composition worldwide, providing transparency and accountability to help drive forward boardroom diversity. The research provides visibility into public and private companies, examining multiple dimensions of diversity and inclusion across the Americas, Europe and the UK, Africa, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region.
