Women directors on Massachusetts corporate boards

Massachusetts is often held up as a forward-thinking state, but when it comes to the gender diversity of its boardrooms and corner offices, Massachusetts lags behind, according to a report out Thursday by the Boston Club, which works for the advancement of women leaders. The Bay State has had an uptick in the number of women executives and directors at the 100 largest public companies for the past several years. But the percentage of women directors in Massachusetts falls short compared to other states, ranking eighth out of 18 states surveyed, according to a Boston Club analysis of data from the InterOrganization Network, a national women in business advocacy group.
