Health Research

The Leverage Network researched the diversity of the CEO, board chair, and board of directors for the top ten publicly traded companies by revenue across four healthcare sectors, which includes providers, payors, pharmaceutical companies, and biotech organizations for the years 2016, 2017, and 2018. In the provider category, we expanded our research to include five additional not-for-profit or privately held hospital and healthcare systems.

What we found is that of those organizations only 9% of board members were Black; of those 9% a mere 3% were Black Women. Less than 1% of Board Chairs were Black.
