Cooper Tire recognized for corporate board diversity

Cooper Tire & Rubber Company will be recognized by the Women’s Forum of New York at its Breakfast of Corporate Champions on Nov. 7 for having a corporate board comprised of 30 percent women, (exceeding the national average of 23.4 percent women). The Women’s Forum of New York, through its Corporate Board Initiative, is working toward achieving 50/50 gender parity in the nation’s boardrooms by 2025. “Diversity in the boardroom is good business,” said Cooper President & Chief Executive Officer Brad Hughes. “Different backgrounds and perspectives bring about healthy debate on strategic opportunities and challenges.” Cooper will join 323 S&P/Fortune 1000 companies to be honored in November.
