Amazon has recently come under fire for the lack of diversity of its board of directors, but female representation on its board is near the average of the company’s peer set. Women make up 30 percent of Amazon’s 10-person board. But unlike its 17 peers, which all have at least one director who is a person of color, all of Amazon’s board members are white. On average, about 19 percent of the boards of consumer goods and services companies in the Russell 3000 are women. That — combined with John Seely Brown, who is not standing for reelection — could mean the board may become more diverse soon.
