Boards Stay Silent on Sexual Harassment

Sources: theBoardlist and Qualtrics

Only 23% of company boards have discussed sexual harassment or gender discrimination in recent months, according to a survey of 600 company directors done in August. And only 12% of boards have taken any action to address the issues in their companies.

The findings suggest that an onslaught of sexual harassment allegations against business executives and entertainment figures this year has yet to change how corporate boards view the issue. The survey found that most board members believe gender issues are either not a problem within their company or they’re not something the board needs to deal with. The survey was conducted by theBoardlist, which runs a directory of women who are qualified to sit on company boards, and Qualtrics, a data analytics company.
