Give Her a Reason to Rise

When you donate to 50/50 Women on Boards, you ensure women and women of color are provided the tools to advance to board positions.

Why is gender balance and diversity on corporate boards a business imperative?


Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Inclusion starts at the top!

Independent research shows that companies with diverse boards are more profitable and productive; yet 71% of the largest U.S. companies are still lacking women and women of color on their boards.

Our Gender Diversity Index Directory Ranks the Russell 3000 Companies, the largest U.S. Companies, by the number of women on their boards. Only 11%, or 315 companies to date have gender-balanced boards.

How your donation Increases the number of women and women of color on boards


We provide corporations with the tools to invest in their women talent. Our Board-Readiness Workshops and Networking Hub empower women to market themselves, cultivate meaningful board relationships, and develop the skills for successful board leadership.


We transparently report the number of women on Russell 3000 company boards by state, sector, company size and race & ethnicity, and publish the results to encourage companies to add more women to their boards, and recognize those making a difference.


We host Global Conversations and in-person events worldwide, featuring influential voices and experienced corporate board directors who provide leaders with best practices for advancing boardroom diversity, and mentor women on how to pursue a board seat.


We work with corporations to increase awareness of the critical business imperative of gender-balanced and diverse boards to develop influential campaigns that advance women in the pipeline.

Thank you for the incredible course! In fact, following Friday’s session, I was speaking with a man who serves on one of my nonprofit boards and I presented my high-impact sound bite. He said I had valuable skills to serve on boards, which was immediately rewarding!
