Los Angeles Times: Apple Pledges to Consider Adding More Women, Minorities to Board

Trillium and Sustainability Group’s engagement with Apple, Inc., regarding board and executive diversity, continues to receive wide media coverage.

Jessica Guynn, technology reporter for the Los Angeles Times, writes:

“[The] company added new language to the board charter to say it plans to consider women and minorities as board candidates.

Apple made the move after shareholders Trillium Asset Management and the Sustainability Group expressed disappointment that Apple has only one woman on its eight-member board and only one woman on its executive team reporting to Chief Executive Tim Cook.

‘This is going to be a multiyear process. It is not going to change overnight,’ said Jonas Kron, director of shareholder advocacy at Boston-based Trillium. ‘It will take some time for Apple to make the decisions they need to make and vet the possible candidates out there. But I think they are committed to doing that.’”
