On November 15, business leaders will be convening in cities across the U.S. as part of 2020 Women on Boards' National Conversation on Board Diversity, including in metro Detroit. Join us and hear an expert panel of leaders give their insights on how we can collaborate with companies to increase the number of women on boards.
Inforum's 2017 Women's Leadership Report, created in collaboration with the Mike Ilitch School of Business, found that only 15 percent of directors at Michigan's largest 100 public companies are women. Only 13 percent are executive officers - an important pipeline for board service. This is consistent with national trends.
2020WOB is a nonprofit education and advocacy campaign that is working to achieve a minimum of 20 percent women directors on all boards by 2020 - the milestone 100th anniversary of women's right to vote.
Her board service includes Detroit Economic Club, TechTown Detroit, Hatch Detroit, and Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve, and previously the Professional Ethics Task Force of the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants and the External Advisory Board for the MSU Department of Accounting and Information Systems.
Her board service includes Intersect ENT, LaunchPoint Corp., Inforum, and Presbyterian Health Plan. She previously led the boards of Availity, Medecision and Innovista Health Solutions.
Dinner and wine included

About 2020 Women on Boards
2020 Women on Boards is a national campaign to increase the percentage of women on U.S. company boards to 20% or greater by the year 2020. Founded in Boston in 2010, the consumer-oriented, grassroots campaign is redefining good corporate governance, gender diversity standards and creating a cultural imperative for corporate action.
2020 Women on Boards is well known for its research on the gender composition of boards of directors, including its proprietary Gender Diversity Directory, a database of over 1,800 public and private companies categorized by the gender composition of their boards. We congratulate companies for achieving or surpassing the 20% goal and encourage other companies to do better.
Among the campaign's signature programs, the National Conversation on Board Diversity is an annual event that takes place on a single day throughout cities in the U.S. and the world, when thousands of C-Suite and senior level executives discuss and explore the benefits that women bring to company boardrooms. The campaign is sweeping the country, with thousands of supporters and 2020 Campaign Committees in cities across the country. Click here to learn more.
