- Take Action
Join the National Conversation on Gender Diversity in U.S. corporate boardrooms on Tuesday, November 11, 2013, hosted by 2020 Women on Boards’ chapters and champions worldwide. Help us spread the word and fulfill our mission to put more women in the boardroom.
2020 Women on Boards’ mission is to increase the percentage of women on U.S. corporate boards to 20% (from the current 15.6%) or greater by 2020. Why should we care about gender diversity in corporate boardrooms? Here are 3 reasons why:
- Companies with women on their boards have higher returns on equity, lower relative debt levels, higher stock valuation and higher average growth.
- Companies with female directors and executive officers send a clear message that they value diversity and experience.
- Women bring different perspectives to the challenges facing today’s corporations. Diversity of thought breeds innovation and better decision-making.
So join us, on 11/12/13, when we’ll promote efforts to increase the proportion of female executives, raise critical funding to support those efforts, and make our voices heard worldwide. If you want to help “Move the Needle” forward in your community by hosting an event, we’ve made it easy for you. You don’t need any event organizing experience – just the help of our online tool kit!
