Women's Forum Corporate Board Initiative
Advancing Women’s Leadership on Corporate Boards
Women’s Forum Database of CEO-Sponsored Board Ready Women
Women are critical stakeholders in every business as consumers, employees and shareholders – yet they hold less than 20% of board seats in Fortune 500 companies, reflecting a stagnant growth rate of less than ½% per year since 1995.
Today there is an abundant supply of qualified women in corporations who are ready for boards but are not connecting to opportunities.
The Women's Forum asks CEOs to help qualified women make that connection by sponsoring them in our database which can be accessed free of charge to Board nominating committees and search firms. These candidates have unique appeal because they are already vetted by CEO sponsorship.
