It was placed on Tuesday morning by asset manager State Street Global as part of a campaign to increase gender diversity in Wall Street's traditionally male-dominated environment and call on the industry to increase the number of women on corporate boards.
"We believe good corporate governance is a function of strong, effective and independent board leadership", State's president Ron O'Hanley said.
As part of the campaign, State Street is sending a letter to 3500 corporations calling for more gender diversity in the upper echelons of management, amid warnings that it will vote against boards that fail to take steps to push women up the leadership ladder.
