Join Us for the 2020 Women on Boards Symposium
November 15, 2018

2:00 – 7:00 pm
Arizona Biltmore
2400 E Missouri Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85016

On one day in 30 cities across the United States, London, Madrid, Mexico City and Hong Kong, thousands of C-Suite and senior level executives and women seeking board positions will discuss and explore the benefits that gender diversity brings to corporate boardrooms. The goal: to raise awareness and continue the momentum to achieve 20 percent or more of all corporate board seats to be held by women by the end of 2020.

Since 2012, more than 6000 people have attended National Conversation events, with thousands more joining in on social media. In 2018, we will dramatically expand participation and visibility of the Conversation, in celebration of the campaign’s seventh anniversary.

2018 Strategic Question:

How do we collaborate with and help corporations in our region increase women on their boards?
