CENSUS Methodology

The Director Diversity Initiative consulted the company's most recent proxy statements issued before September 30 of the year of the census to determine board composition and named executive officers as of that date. Decisions on the race and gender of board members are based on examination of photos, internet searches, and the North Carolina Department of Elections database. Emails were sent to the companies to verify the information we compiled based on our examination of the proxy statements and other sources. The DDI director makes every effort to achieve a high degree of accuracy. If errors or omissions in this data are discovered, please contact Lissa Broome.
