Despite the fact that women comprise more than half of the workforce at America’s companies, women CEOs number only 15 out of 500 at the nation’s largest corporations and women represent only 15.2 percent of Fortune 500 company board membership. Board directorships can be both lucrative and priceless for women entrepreneurs who are striving to make certain connections or position themselves and their enterprises for global commerce. Why the abysmal lag in corporate board appointments for women despite the compelling evidence that corporate boards that include a critical mass of women (3 or more) consistently outperform their competitors? Felicia talks to guests about preparing more women for corporate board directorship, how to change the current board membership trends—and what changing it could mean for women entrepreneurs.
