Women on Boards: A 360 Degree Perspective
May. 9, 2018
Bethesda, MD


Gender diversity increases corporate bottom lines and enhances board effectiveness. Women fuel a huge amount of our economy and have clear insights into purchasing motivations and customer experiences that can drive business strategies and long-term company profitability. Yet, women struggle to land board positions. Why? Are qualified women hard to find? Are men being left out of the conversation? Join your fellow directors in an interactive conversation with one of the nation's most highly recognized business and governance women leaders, Linda Rabbitt, Chairman and CEO of rand* corporation. Jim Schleckser will serve as program moderator in helping spotlight the governance imperatives in this high-profile topic from a 360° perspective.

More than twelve years ago the New York Stock Exchange ruled that Boards of Directors should assess themselves annually to help improve their performance and to record the results in the proxy statement. This was a well-intentioned ruling and one which, to the best of our knowledge, has not harmed any company or Board of Directors. To the contrary, the results of this practice have proven how successful it is when properly conducted; but what if it is not? What is actually happening? Why are some Boards successful and others not? What criteria can be used to measure a Board's progress?

NACD New York has assembled some of the best practitioners in the Board Space. They will share their experiences and their observations of what works, what needs to change and what they believe the best practices going forward should be. We will hear their recommendations of how this annual tool should be practiced and learn the resulting benefits of a Board Assessment from the standpoint of:

- Helping Directors do their job
- Improving dialogue between Board and Management
- Getting the Business Model right and doing real Succession Planning
- Board Director Succession, including diversity
- Peer-to-Peer Evaluation; How Directors can add more value to the Board
- Selecting the Board Leader
- Replacing a Director who no longer contributes
- Selecting the ideal Committee Members
- Involving Management in the Board Assessment Process
