Has DEI Worked for Women?

MSCI ACWI Index constituents with comprehensive diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs had, on average, better board-level gender diversity but fewer women in CEO or CFO roles or in their general workforces.
Whether companies with DEI programs have been focused on adding more women to their boards of directors or are yet to walk the talk, the result is that women remain underrepresented at most firms, especially in the C-suite.
We found significant gaps in diversity-data disclosure across all companies we examined, hindering investors’ ability to fully assess many companies’ gender diversity at all levels.
