What is the Impact?
Foreign Service Generalists are 82% white and 60% male. Foreign Service Specialists are 76% white and 73% male  (June 2015 Diversity Statistics).

Women make up 5% of CEOs in Fortune 500 companies and 17% of the corporate board members among Fortune 500 companies in the U.S. (Pew Research Center).

In 2014, women held 35% of Chief of Mission positions and 29% of Deputy Chief of Mission positions (data from HR/RMA/WPA presentation, March, 2014).  The Senior Foreign Service as a whole remains 70% male (June 2015 Diversity Statistics).
