Webinar: What Directors Need to Do to Drive Gender Diversity

Directors & Boards and Russell Reynolds Associates Discuss Women on Boards

April 16, 2013

In this 60-minute free webinar, Russell Reynolds Associates’ Managing Director Jana Rich, director Lorrie Norrington, and Directors & Boards' Jim Kristie discuss the issue of gender diversity on boards and address what aspiring female executives can do to get a seat at the boardroom table.

The topic of gender diversity is nothing new. What is new - or what needs renewed focus - how organizations go about driving gender diversity on their boards and within their firms.

We’re at a critical inflection point in the evolution of this issue. Companies have been aware of the importance of gender diversity long enough now that we have a clearer picture of what’s working and what’s not.

This webinar for directors, senior executives, will explore the current environment where we currently stand and what remains to be achieved. What are the current trends? How are leading individuals and organizations thinking about gender diversity more effectively than their predecessors? Data demonstrates that gender diversity in the boardroom and the executive suite leads to stronger organizational performance? How do conversations like Sheryl Sandberg’s recent Lean In initiative focus positive attention on gender diversity?

Diversity not about hitting targets. It's about driving long-term success for women and the companies they represent. How can women not only make it to the boardroom, but contribute and thrive there?
