At present, one can see how academia, sector-specific press publications, the political arena, and even public opinion call for greater diversity and inclusion on boards of directors of companies in Chile. In 2016, the Government of Chile acted to promote gender diversity on company boards by means of a policy that seeks to increase female participation on the boards of companies that form part of the System of Public Companies (SPC) to 40%. This policy was created in a context where the presence of women on the boards of IPSA and IGPA companies is less than 10%, a figure significantly lower than almost all developed countries and most emerging countries to date.
