February 12, 2020 – LOS ANGELES, Calif. - 2020 Women on Boards (2020WOB), the preeminent education, research and advocacy campaign tracking the progress of women on corporate boards in the U.S., welcomes global investment company BNY Mellon as a national sponsor, with an exclusivity in the wealth management business category. Women make up 33% of BNY Mellon’s board of directors.
The 2020WOB campaign is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2020, having surpassed its original mission — achieving at least 20% of corporate board seats with women — a year ahead of schedule in 2019, when its 2020WOB research found that 20.4% of Russell 3000 board seats were held by women for the first time nationally.
“We are pleased to partner with BNY Mellon Wealth Management, a company committed to leading by example in its long-standing support of women in business,” states Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, CEO of 2020 Women on Boards.
BNY Mellon recognizes that women’s financial inclusion brings a wide variety of benefits, not only for women, but for their families, society at large and future generations of both men and women. As a member of the community with influence and an asset manager looking to maximize the performance of client assets, BNY Mellon has a sincere interest in the issue of underrepresentation and is committed to the economic empowerment of women.
