DALLAS, May 17, 2022 — 50/50 Women on Boards™ (50/50WOB), the leading global education and advocacy campaign driving gender balance and diversity on corporate boards, congratulates Thryv Holdings, Inc. for having a gender-balanced board.
With three women directors, holding 43 percent of its corporate board seats, Thryv is one of only 8 percent (just 241) Russell 3000 companies with a gender-balanced board. This achievement is a powerful example that change at the highest level requires exceptional corporate commitment to reach equity on corporate boards.
“We’re proud to say our board brings a diverse perspective to all our strategic decisions,” said Thryv Chairman and CEO Joe Walsh. “We feel it is important to work on our diversity initiatives throughout the organization and this recognition affirms our actions.”
“Over the last decade, our 50/50 Women on Boards Gender Diversity Index™ reveals the gradual acceleration of women to corporate boards. However, there is still a significant gap to achieve gender balance,” said Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, CEO of 50/50 Women on Boards. “It’s critical that we recognize these milestones and acknowledge corporations, such as Thryv, for leading by example with a gender-balanced corporate board.”
