SF Chronicle: New hires to corporate boards in California still mostly white, despite state law

LCDA President and CEO Esther Aguilera said she was disappointed by the results, particularly with regard to the only 14 Latinx people hired onto boards during the six month period, about 2.5% of the total hires, despite their making up nearly 40% of the state’s population according to U.S. Census figures. That relatively small number of Latinx hires illustrates how mandating diversity does not mean all groups will see representation in boardrooms increase equally because of the new law. That could build pressure to increase the representation of more specific groups on future boards said Darren Rosenblum, a law professor at Pace University School of Law who has studied board diversity.
