The buzz is building. We'll be holding our first national conversation on diversity in the boardroom on December 12, 2012 at noon. Events will be held in restaurants, ballrooms, college campuses, office lunchrooms and kitchen tables across the US, engaging thousands of people in a united call for action to put more women on US company boards.
We already have 20 events are planned: in Boston, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Louisville, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Phoenix and San Francisco, organized by 2020 Steering Committees, Affiliates and supporters. New events are being added every week. Check the 12/12/12 section of the website for updates.
Anyone can hold a 12/12/12 event - they can be large forums for a hundred or more people, or intimate gatherings around your kitchen table. The structure is up to the organizer, but each event will have some common elements: our new 2020 Video which will make its debut at our 12/12/12 events nationwide and a brief presentation of our latest 2020 Index, which will be released later this month. At each event there will be a designated Tweeter, so we will have consistent tweeting throughout the day, as the events move from the East, to the Mid-West and to the West.
If you're interested in hosting a 12/12/12 event download our Organizer's Toolkit on our website. The tool kit will walk you through the basics of organizing your event, choosing a venue, engaging sponsors, and promoting the event on social media.
