Pursuing a Corporate Board Position

May 2, 2017

San Francisco, California

It has been shown that corporate board diversity increases the bottom line, lowers risk profile, and enhances a company’s reputation. Board members who bring different perspectives and different skills and experiences can and will ask different questions, identify different opportunities for growth, and help a company keep pace in the rapidly changing marketplace.

Nevertheless, certain groups are statistically underrepresented in the boardroom. For example, women currently hold only approximately 20% of board seats at Fortune 500 companies. Lawyers, who often have extensive involvement in the boardroom and savvy business acumen, don’t fare much better in actually earning a seat at the table.

Carly Alameda and Olga Mack invite you to join them for a conversation addressing the opportunities, challenges, and strategies for pursuing a corporate board position. They will share what they learned over their year-long journey interviewing board recruiters, CEOs, GCs, and current board members for their recently completed electronic book
All [A]Board: Insights and Inspirations for Your Journey to and in the Boardroom.

The event will also feature special guest SC Moatti, managing director of The Angels’ Forum and founder of Products That Count, who will contribute her perspective on joining and succeeding in the corporate boardroom.

Insights on Women and Boards

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.

2017 Breaking Glass Forum for Women Executives

Innovation, Influence & Intersectionality

Date:  March 16, 2017
Time: 8:30am – 6:00pm
Location:  LiveRamp San Francisco office
Too often, women are seen as monolithic, one-dimensional stereotypes and not the multi-faceted people we are.  Each of us brings different layers of identity to the table – woman, person of color, immigrant, gay, etc.  And this intersectionality can give us unique leadership challenges in the workplace.  Join this Executive Forum to transform these challenges into opportunities and take your leadership to the next level.  Expand your connections, engage in real problem solving and become your most powerful self within a strong, supportive community of women executives.
