The Board Game presents the undeniable case for having more women corporate directors at the decision-making tables of America's public companies. Fifty-eight women directors tell how they won their first board seats. From her executive-search perspective, author Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire gives valuable advice to women at all career stages-so YOU, your sisters, your mothers, and your daughters will have a chance to win The Board Game.
Influential male business leaders say it's smart to have women on boards:
"Corporate boards without women directors are basically dysfunctional. Companies can no longer ignore half the population (and seventy percent of the purchasing power) and be successful." -Peter V. Ueberroth, director, Coca-Cola-three women directors today; women on board since 1934.
"A Board of Clones tends to do clone thinking and usually has a very narrow range of creativity. A board that has both genders and multiple ethnicities, is far more likely to be productive and responsive to employees and customers. I feel sorry for any organization that doesn't have a significant level of diversity." -George C. Halvorson, Chairman/CEO, Kaiser Permanente-five women directors on board.
