Diversity Among Interlocking Directors and Among Those who are on Major Policy Groups

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

For the past 100 years, scholars have studied interlocking directors -- the individuals who sit as directors on more than one corporate board (e.g., Brandeis, 1916; Useem, 1984; Burris, 1992; Staples, 2013). The study of interlockers allows for a way to study diversity in the higher levels of the corporate world. Research has shown an increase over the past few decades in the number of white women, African Americans, Latinos and Asian Americans who sit on corporate boards and those who have been appointed CEOs of Fortune 500 corporations (Zweigenhaft and Domhoff, 2006, 2011). This study extends that previous work on diversity by looking in depth at the 4605 men and women who sat on Fortune 500 boards or who were members of one of four key policy groups (the Business Roundtable, the Business Council, the Brookings Institution, and the Council of Foreign Relations) in 2010. The focus is on the extent to which there is gender, racial and ethnic diversity among corporate interlockers, among those who sit on key policy boards, and those who are on both corporate boards and on key policy groups, and what these data for 2010 tell us about trends over time.
