Women on Boards, a premier global education and advocacy campaign committed to increasing the number of women on corporate brands, has recognised Chart Industries as a “W” (for Winning) company.

The cryogenic equipment manufacturer was recognised by Women on Boards due to its Corporate Board having at least 20% female Directors during 2019.

2020 Women on Board annually tracks, analyses and reports on the progress of numbers of women on the Russell 3000 company boards.

As a campaign dedicated to education and collaboration, 2020 Women on Boards recognises companies that exhibit good corporate governance.

A “W” company is identified among Russell 3000 public corporations for having achieved the goal of at least 20% of its board seats held by women.

Chart currently has three women Directors out of a total eight members, meaning women hold 38% of its corporate board seats.

“A diversity of views helps to make a company more informed and to make smart business decisions,” said Jill Evanko, CEO and President of Chart.

“We gain greater customer insight and build stronger teams when we listen to different perspectives.”

In 2019, the Russell 3000 reached the historic national landmark of 20.4% women holding corporate board positions, up from 17.7% in 2018, per the Gender Diversity Index report that 2020 Women on Boards publishes annually,

“It’s even more critical now, at a time when the business world is transforming a total shift in board governance practices, that we applaud leading companies including Chart that appreciate having business-savvy women on their boards as a competitive advantage,” said Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, CEO of 2020 Women on Boards.

“Even with the positive national momentum, US companies are still a long way from gender balance in the boardroom, and Chart is showing the way.”
