Winning "W" Company designation honors companies where women hold at least 20% of Board seats
LITTLE FALLS, N.J., Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Cantel Medical Corp. (CMD) has been named a Winning 'W' Company by 2020 Women on Boards (2020WOB) for having women make up at least 20% of its Board of Directors.
2020WOB's annual Gender Diversity Index, which cites those on the Winning 'W' Companies list, tracks the gender composition of corporate Board of Director seats among the Russell 3000 Index. In 2018, the percentage of Board seats held by women rose to 17.7%, up from 16.0% in 2017. Still, nearly one-fourth of public companies in the U.S. have no women on their Boards.
