Form a 2020 Campaign Committee
2020 Campaign Committees help 2020 Women on Boards engage supporters and work to increase the number of women who serve as directors in local companies.
Campaign Committees can be managed by groups of individuals, or by an organization aligned with the 2020 mission such as student groups, university alumnae associations, membership organizations or professional associations. Our goal is to launch 2020 Campaign Committees in major cities across the United States.
Campaign Committee Requirements:
Form a committee: People of influence who manage activities.
Hold one event each year: Be part of the annual National Conversation on Board Diversity.
Participate in Plus 1 Campaign: Engage women directors on T company boards to encourage nominating committees to add women and move the companies to V or W status.
Recruit and engage local supporters, affiliates and corporate partners: Identify individuals, non-profits and companies to support the campaign in name or financially.
Fundraise: Help us raise the funds needed to support research, education and advocacy initiatives.
Campaign Committees Run by Affiliates: Non-profit organizations with 501c3, 501c6, etc. that manage local committees: 20% of all money raised at co-branded events go to the 2020 Women on Boards National Campaign. Affiliate keeps 80%.
Campaign Committees Run by Individuals: Individuals who manage local committees use 2020 National's 501c3 status for fundraising. 20% of all funds raised go to fund committee activities. 80% goes to 2020 Women on Boards National Campaign.
