Board Member Search Firm Seeks More Board Stakeholder Representation
I met with a senior executive woman recently and she concurred that the representation of women board members is about equal to the representation of women in senior management roles in companies.
By focusing on representing STAKEHOLDERS, women have a much more likely chance to serve on boards. Stakeholders represent shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers and communities. This representation has more than 19% of the employees or customers that are women which gives senior management strong governance guidance as they consider strategic issues that challenge the company.
Read the recent Wall Street Journal article “Are Changes In Store for Women in the Boardroom?” and see if you agree with me. I have three daughters and I want their day to come to lead!
