"It is an honor for CalAmp to be recognized by 50/50 Women on Boards," said Amal Johnson, Chair of CalAmp's Board of Directors.

Founded in 2010, 50/50 Women on Boards is a nonprofit global education and advocacy campaign driving the movement toward gender balance and diversity on corporate boards. Reaching and exceeding its initial goal of 20 percent women directors by 2020, the organization's new campaign boldly calls for gender balance and diversity on corporate boards of the Russell 3000 Index companies. CalAmp has previously been honored as a 2020 Women on Boards Winning "W" Company for meeting the initial goal set by 50/50 Women on Boards.
"Women now hold a historic 23.7 percent of the Russell 3000 company board seats, but only six percent of corporations have gender-balanced boards, despite numerous studies confirming women directors on boards is a critical factor for improved corporate performance and profitability," said Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, CEO of 50/50 Women on Boards.
