Getting Onto Boards: Recruiting and Preparing Women for the Boardroom

Thursday, October 26, 2017

1:00 p.m. (EDT)
Virtual Event

As companies seek to address the challenges and opportunities brought about by digital disruption, driving global growth, and entering new markets, their boardrooms are also in transition. Board directors are looking around the table and recognizing the need to bring new perspectives into the boardroom. Currently, women account for only 13% of public company board directors in the United States. The demand for technology, marketing, financial, geographic, and core industry expertise in the boardroom will continue to grow, as will the interest in bringing more people of diverse backgrounds (gender, ethnicity, age, etc.) to the table.

Tune in on October 26th at 1:00 p.m. as Julie C. Norris AB '89, JD '93, MBA '93 discusses what boards are looking for, how boards go about recruiting new directors, and how to effectively position yourself for board opportunities.
