Based on MSCI's 2014 Women on Boards report, there continues to be a slow increase in the overall percentage of women on boards globally. Among MSCI World companies, women currently hold 17.3% of all directorships. In the US, among S&P 500 companies, women currently hold 19.0% of directorships, up from 16.9% in 2013. Upon closer examination, however, the vast majority of the gains are coming from markets that have instituted mandates and regulations to boost the ranks of women on boards. In markets lacking the regulatory 'stick,' the gains are minimal.
