Boards of Directors make crucial decisions about steering an organization’s operations, which impact both shareholders and the surrounding community. Although women comprise half of the population, they presently hold less than 20% of corporate board seats. Promoting the diversity of boardrooms brings new perspectives and more accurately reflects the stakeholder community, leading to better shared decision making.

Please join us for a panel discussion on the unique challenges women face in boardrooms. Our panelists will provide insights into the benefit of including women in boardrooms and their ideas of how individuals, companies and the region can promote more inclusive boardrooms. The female panelists include: Sarah Stewart from the 2020 Women on Boards Initiative, Yvonne Campos, a corporate founder and mentor to women-run businesses, and Wilma McNeese, an experienced board member from the not-for-profit sector. Babs Carryer of the University of Pittsburgh Innovation Institute will moderate our panel. Light hors d’oeurves and drinks will be served.

Childcare will be provided by Flexable, generously sponsored by Innovation Works. To take advantage of this service, please register and sign up here.
