HBSASC Event - Getting Women on Corporate Boards: Stepping Up!
Join our panel of 3 experts as they discuss: how for-profit boards function, practical differences between public vs private vs non-profit boards, how the for-profit selection process works, and what you can do to improve your chances of getting a board seat.
Recent studies have indicated that gender diversity in the corporate boardroom can enhance dialogue, curb excessive risk taking, and boost performance and share price, and yet the percentage of women holding board seats at S&P 500 companies is holding steady under 20%.
Registration: $40, members; $50, non-members. (Includes pre-paid parking.)
