Only 20.2% of Fortune 500 board seats are held by women
even though more than half of management occupations are held by women
, and there are still about 19 Fortune 500 companies with all-male boards! According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO)
and the Equilar Gender Diversity Index (GDI)
, at this rate it will take 40 to 100 years to reach parity on American corporate boards. In the face of these challenges, groups like Women Serve on Boards are fighting to see more female role models and leaders at every level of corporate leadership. At our March event, Olga Mack, CLUB member and founder of the Women Serve on Boards
movement, will introduce the movement, discuss what she has learned, the results she has achieved, and her vision for the future. Learn how you can help improve these grim statistics and step up your career - start your board-readiness journey with this engaging event.
