theBoardlist is a Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to improving corporate governance by increasing gender diversity on boards. To achieve our mission, we have developed a SaaS platform and educational programming that empowers our growing community of over 4,800 CEO, C-level executives and VC’s to recommend and discover outstanding board-ready talent for private and public boards.

Since our public launch in 2016, over 550 companies have used theBoardlist as a resource in their board searches, and over 135 board seats have been filled with theBoardlist’s influence. Our vision is for 100% of companies to view and, most importantly, act on increasing gender diversity on their boards as an opportunity to realize greater performance.
