Abstract: This study examines the relationship between gender diversity in the boardroom and firm performance for listed firms in S&P500. Board diversity is defined as the percentage of women on board, and firm performance is measured by Return on Assets (ROA). This research is important because it provides evidence that testing whether board diversity is related to improving firm performances, and thus indicates a strategy to increase firm values. Taken board size and firm size into consideration, we find a positive relationship between the percentage of women in the boardroom and firm performance.
