We are excited to spread the news of Marilyn Spiegel’s appointment to Caesars Entertainment’s Board of Directors! Over the past year, Women Serve on Boards has urged Caesars Entertainment and other F500 companies that have zero women on their boards to make board diversity a priority. We are thrilled that Caesars’ leaders took action following the completion of its merger and restructuring. Congratulations!

The whole Women Serve on Boards community has been heard through our social media campaign and helped enact change. Be proud. We applaud Caesars for taking the needed action towards board diversity. But our efforts won’t cease at just one woman, there should be many. However, today counts as a victory and a huge stepping stone for Caesars to continue addressing gender disparity within corporate settings. We’re inspired to keep fighting for change and excited to see Marilyn’s impact on shaping the company’s future. It’s moments like this that make everyone’s efforts fruitful.
