Change Is In The Air!

When Facebook filed for an IPO in February without a single woman on its board 2020 Women on Boards took action. Within hours we issued a press release on the wires and engaged thousands on our social media channels. We were interviewed by many publications including the Wall Street Journal. We consulted with the Face It Campaign as they strategized a Facebook Black Out and march in front of the company's New York headquarters. Facebook got the message and put Sheryl Sandberg on the board. Let's see an independent woman director next.
We have seen other progress. According to NACD in the last three weeks 6 women have been appointed to the boards of public companies. Four companies left the Z ranks: ConocoPhillips, eHealth, UnderArmour and MBIA, each appointing one woman director. Qualcomm and Game Stock each added a woman to their boards to become W companies.
Together we can make it happen!
