How to Triumph in the Board-Diversity Battle, with Stephanie Sonnabend
Women are more than 50% of the population yet represent less than 20% of corporate board seats.
Stephanie Sonnabend wants to do something about that!
In 2010, she co-founded 2020 Women on Boards, a national campaign to increase the percentage of women on U.S. company boards to 20 percent or greater by the year 2020. Today the campaign is rapidly spreading throughout the United States providing education and advocacy strategies designed to encourage change.
She’s now Chair of 2020 WoB. In this role, Stephanie serves as an inspirational speaker educating audiences about what a board does, why diversity is important, and how to advance your career and prepare for board service.
Boards today require fresh thinking and diverse perspectives. Stephanie is the change agent spurring them forward. She’s passionate about making the world a better place, as you’ll hear.
