Gender equality leads to better outcomes for everyone
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The California Partners Project collaborates with the California State Government and the private sector to measure, spotlight, and create resources to advance equal pay and women's representation on corporate boards.
Resources and tools on this site include:
A Resource Hub for women interested in board services and companies interested in diversifying their boards.
A list of the public companies in California who may have future opportunities for women directors.
Our report series documenting the sea change in board leadership in California shares business leaders' perspectives and spotlights some of the tremendous female talents California companies have added to their boards since 2018.
In 2018, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson passed and Governor Jerry Brown enacted SB 826, a first-in-the-nation law requiring publicly-traded companies with California headquarters to have at least one woman on their board of directors. As of January 1, 2022, the law required that boards of six or more directors have at least three women, and boards of five have at least two.
As the State of California defends the law in court, , the benefits of SB 826 are clear; many companies have benefited first-hand from the advantages of diversifying their boards and have found board gender diversity is good for business, good for the economy, and good for California.
