#GetOnBoard Week will bring together 1000+ women leaders to learn, advocate and lead with 25+ board-related events during the week of November 16th. The week will include our annual flagship breakfast (virtual this year) held in partnership with 2020 Women on Boards, a national effort to increase the percentage of women on U.S. company boards to 20% or greater by 2020.
Last year's speakers and honorees at our in-person event blew us away and marked a new era: 100% of S&P companies have at least one director and 22.6% of board seats in the US are now filled by women! California's historic SB826 women on boards law has led to a national ripple effect with 6 states having adopted or proposed amendments for gender diversity in the boardroom.
The time is now as we move to critical mass with 3 women required for public boards in California next year!
#GetOnBoard Week is brought to you by How Women Lead, a nonprofit working with some of the most powerful executives and leading companies in the Bay Area & Silicon Valley to build workplaces that work for women. We help organizations accelerate progress for women at work by providing latest research, practical tools and proven solutions to remove barriers and drive change.
