Research is clear: diverse boards have more profitable corporate bottom lines.

Join us for the annual
National Conversation on Board Diversity

Breakfast and Panel Discussion

Can't join us in the morning? Bentley University will be hosting an evening event for 2020 Women on Boards. Join them here.

The Event

On November 15, in cities across the U.S. and throughout the world, thousands of C-Suite and senior level executives will discuss and explore the benefits that women bring to company boardrooms.

This year our program will open with a panel discussion that will address this year's theme:

“How can we collaborate with companies in our region to help increase the number of women directors on their boards?"

Followed by table discussions, facilitated by a female corporate board member at each table.
