Women on Boards, the premier global education and advocacy campaign committed to increasing the number of women on corporateboards, has recognized Horizon Bancorp as a "W" for "Winning" company because its corporate board had at least 20% women directors during 2019.  

Horizon has over 25% women directors represented on its Board of Directors. 2020 Women on Boards (“2020 WOB”) annually tracks, analyzes and reports on the progress of the number of women represented on the Russell 3000 company boards. As a campaign dedicated to education and collaboration, 2020WOB recognizes companies, including Horizon that exhibit good corporate governance. A “Winning” company is identified among Russell 3000 public corporations for having achieved the goal of at least 20% of its board seats held by women.

In 2019, the Russell 3000 reached the historic national landmark of 20.4% women holding corporate board positions, up from 17.7% in 2018, per the Gender Diversity Indexreport that 2020 Women on Boards publishes annually.

“Diversity and Inclusion is a core value at Horizon. We pride ourselves on our constant efforts to embrace diversity at all levels of the organization. This enables us to build strong diverse teams of advisors that not only tackle the day to day challenges in the banking world but provide new perspectives and business solutions,” stated Craig Dwight, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

It’s even more critical now, at a time when the business world is transforming a total shift in board governance practices, that we applaud leading companies including Horizon that appreciate  having business-savvy women on their boards as a competitive advantage,” 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. And Horizon Bank is showing the way.”
