Villanova faculty and students now have access to the ISS Directors and NEO Diversity Datasets. The datasets encompass over 27,000 companies, globally. Characteristics of company board members and named executives are documented. This is a unique data set because not only are age, nationality and gender of persons recorded but ethnicity is as well. Ethnicity data sources are by firm disclosure, by survey feedback, and analyst identification.
It is a well documented and rich source of information about company diversity policies, statements and goals too. Outcomes backed up by numbers and percentages of board and officer composition by ethnicity, gender, age, tenure, and experiential factors are presented. The complete data dictionary is available here.
At present this data is available by SFTP via FileZilla or WinSCP.
Instructions are available here and firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com will share the password with authorize users. It is expected that this data will be on WRDS (Wharton Research Data Services) later in the year. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to schedule a training session.
