HOUSTON, September 22, 2022 /3BL Media/ - The Diversity Research Institute (DRI) releases the 2022 Corporate Governance Report of Fortune 1000 Companies. This report assesses the executive and board demographics of 94 Fortune 1000 companies headquartered in the state of Texas. Companies are scored on a scale of 1-10 to assess their racial and gender demographics in relation to those in the United States. Those companies with the highest scores are named DRI Fortune 1000 Companies Most Representative of the United States. Companies with the lowest scores are listed as the DRI Fortune 1000 Companies Least Representative of the United States.

Our research finds that executive leadership and board membership of Fortune 1000 companies headquartered in Texas continue to be mostly composed of non-Hispanic white men, regardless of county or industry. White men held an average of 69% of all executive leadership and 61% of all board of director positions. When compared to county and state population demographics, we also found a significant underrepresentation of historically marginalized populations. In all, there was an extreme magnitude of racial underrepresentation for Hispanics/Latinx persons in corporate governance given the population of Texas, which was largely unmatched by other racial groups.

Listed are the 94 Fortune 1000 companies headquartered in the state of Texas that were surveyed for the report.
