San Diego has the highest rate of all-male boards in California
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A California senate bill that mandates publicly held corporations to have at least one woman on their board of directors by the end of 2019.
The National Association of Women Business Owners Supported SB 826. The president of the San Diego Chapter, Felena Hanson joined Good Morning San Diego to talk about the bill and the impact it can have.
According to a recent report by the California Secretary of State, only 184 out of 537 publicly traded California corporations have a woman on their board. Hanson said 20 of these 184 corporations are San Diego companies, meaning that San Diego has the highest rate of all-male boards in the entire state of California.
