DHHBA Urges SEC to Include Disability in Diversity Statistics for Nasdaq-Listed Companies

Nasdaq electronic display screens at Times Square

The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) recently proposed that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopt a rule change that would require all companies listed on Nasdaq’s U.S. stock exchange to publicly disclose diversity statistics of their board of directors.

However, disability is not included in these diversity statistics.

In response, the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Bar Association (DHHBA) submitted comments advocating that SEC include disability in the diversity statistics to be reported by Nasdaq-listed companies.
