Women on Boards

  • Murphy wants more women on corporate boards

    murphy 031717SPRINGFIELD – Only about 18 percent of Illinois companies have women on their corporate boards, despite a recent study by the Credit Suisse Report that shows that companies with women on their boards tend to be less risk-averse and have higher income growth.

    State Senator Laura Murphy is authoring Senate Resolution 140, which encourages more equitable and diverse gender representation on corporate boards and urges corporations in Illinois to increase the number of women on their boards.
