PITTSBURGH, March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/
-- Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) has been recognized by 2020 Women
on Boards, the premier global education and advocacy campaign
committed to increasing the number of women on corporate boards, as
a Winning "W" Company for having 20% or more board seats held by
women. This is the first year Ansys has been recognized by 2020
Women on Boards for board diversity.
2020 Women on Boards is a non-profit grassroots campaign
committed to increasing the percentage of women who serve on
company boards to 20% or greater by 2020. Nearly one fourth of
public companies in the U.S. have no female directors on their
boards. Ansys' nine-member board includes three women.
"We are honored to receive the 2020 Women on Boards award.
Diversity and inclusion are part of the core business values that
have enabled us to build a winning culture," said Ron Hovsepian, chairman of the board at Ansys.
"Embracing diversity at all levels of the organization provides us
a broader perspective of business issues, challenges and solutions.
We benefit from having three talented women on our board to provide
their valuable perspectives and experiences."
"The business world is transforming board governance, and it's
critical to recognize leading companies, including Ansys, that
create a competitive advantage by having business-savvy women on
their boards," said Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, CEO of 2020 Women on
Boards. "Even with the positive national momentum, U.S. companies
are still a long way from gender balance in the boardroom but Ansys
is paving the way."
