2020 Fortune Global 500 list hits all time diversity low


The 2020 Fortune Global 500 List, released on 10 August, shows that woman run just 13 out of the 500 top companies globally - one less than last year.  And this year is the first year since 2014, when the data was first collected, in which zero women of colour made the list.  


This is particulary pertinent given the list ranks companies by size across the global economy.

159 Engie, France - Claire Waysand
