Parity on Board Massachusetts State House Hearing
- Date & Time
Join the Parity on Board Coalition for our upcoming hearing!
Massachusetts leads the nation in human talent, yet data shows a lack of representation of women and people of color on state boards and commissions.
The Parity on Board Coalition, led by YW Boston, is a statewide coalition advocating for An Act to Ensure Gender Parity and Racial and Ethnic Diversity on Public Boards and Commissions (H. 3157/S. 2077). This bill will ensure that the composition of each appointed public board and commission broadly reflect the general public of the Commonwealth. All appointive boards and commissions of the state shall be gender, racially and ethnically balanced. According to the bill, composition should not exceed 50% of one gender. Additionally, racial and ethnic composition of each board and commission must, at minimum, reflect the percentage of racial and ethnic minorities in the general population.
