Women Serve on Boards is honored and grateful to have the opportunity to contribute to the Bay Area Council‘s Building Gender Equity in the Workplace: A Best Practices Resources Guide. The Bay Area Council is a business-sponsored, public policy advocacy organization for the Bay Area. As the regional voice of business, the Council is a way for the business community and like-minded individuals to proactively coordinate their efforts towards a stronger economy, more vital corporate environment, and better quality of life. Currently, more than 275 of the largest employers in the region support the Council and offer their CEO or top executive as a member.
The Best Practices Resources Guide will offer top business leaders direction for solving one of the region’s most critical challenges — refining the corporate system to include more females on Boards and executive positions. This resource will be the impetus of change and steward leadership in promoting and implementing strategic policy solutions to make the Bay Area the most innovative, globally competitive, and sustainable region in the world.
