... This report provides both companies and investors with tools to evaluate corporate diversity practices in order to improve diversity outcomes and benefit from improved financial performance. It offers numerous recommendations for companies looking to improve their diversity practices.

Despite the growing understanding of the benefits of effectively managing diverse teams and workforces, Calvert’s reporting found that 41 of S&P 100 companies lack women and minorities among their highest-paid executives; 53 S&P 100 boards have less than 25 percent female representation; and 75 S&P 100 boards have less than 25 percent minority members. As an investor, this represents potential value that can be realised with improved practices.
