Diversity

We vote against all-male board slates and we generally will not support a full board slate unless it includes at least two women. Since 2010, we have voted against over 1,000 board slates due to insufficient gender diversity.
Pax World has filed shareholder proposals asking numerous companies to adopt gender diversity policies for their boards and five of those companies have subsequently announced new female directors.

Pay Equity  

We file and co-file shareholder resolutions on pay equity, requesting that companies disclose the results of pay equity assessments. So far, three of these companies publicly announced that they have no gender pay gap.
Pax Ellevate Management filed a petition for rulemaking with the SEC urging the agency to require public companies to disclose gender pay ratios on an annual basis.
