Women are constantly told they need to take a seat at the table. However, it’s hard to do when there are no open seats. A new report on the state of corporate boards in the United States of America suggests it will take decades for women to achieve equality on corporate boards.
Since lawyers are often asked to serve on community and corporate boards, the WLMP advocates for promoting the inclusion and promotion of women on board. In 2014, we created a special WLMP University Chapter level module shedding light on how boards function along with a skills based session. We encourage those women interested in serving on boards to read the report.
