Overview

California is the first state in the country to mandate gender diversity on the boards of companies doing business in the state, but there are many questions that accompany this development.  Please join speakers associated with DirectWomen, an organization dedicated to preparing women attorneys to sit on corporate boards as they consider:

  • Is this a good idea? 
  • Is it legal?
  • How will it impact board searches?
  • Is there a sufficient pipeline of qualified women to serve on these boards?
