The all-male board is back in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index after a 31-month hiatus.

The reshuffling of the S&P 500 last month brought lighting supplier Monolithic Power Systems Inc., which has six men and no women on its board, into the Index for the first time. The last all-male board -- Copart Inc. -- added a woman in July 2019. The gender disparity comes even as the broader index topped 29% women on boards for the first time last month.
