dc.description.abstract
This paper explores the existing body of research linking a higher proportion of women in business leadership—including on boards of directors and in senior management—to improve overall company performance. The authors conducted a comprehensive literature review to uncover substantial evidence connecting increased gender diversity at the top with enhanced environmental, social, and governance standards. They identified equally strong evidence connecting better ESG with stronger corporate performance, building a comprehensive business case for the value of women’s participation on boards and in senior management.
