That is where ACE Board Training for Women comes in - I've created a comprehensive training program for women who want to join boards. Many women are not aware that corporate and some private boards are PAYING positions and can be a very lucrative way to be compensated. As a seasoned corporate board member, I am passionate about achieving gender balance in the board room (50/50), preparing women to be "board ready" and teaching women how to win a board seat.
This is where you come in - we need an army of board ready women to fill those new director positions as they open up. At the current pace for women getting on boards, women would not account for 50% of new directors for the first time until 2032**!
We Need an Army of Women who are Board Ready
Research shows that companies with a higher participation of women in decision-making roles generate higher returns on equity. Yet in the US, only 16.6%* of corporate board seats are held by women, reflecting a major shortfall in optimal balance for maximum return on investment. Up until recently the board selection process has commonly been via "the good ole boy network", subsequently leaving women out. But times are changing due to pressures from investors and shareholders and more boards are now actively seeking diversity, creating opportunities for qualified women candidates.
