Our signature fundraising event that supports our education and research programs, The National Conversation on Board Diversity is held annually on a single day in locations across the country and international cities.

Event programming includes:

  • Announcing results of the latest national statistics for women on boards of the Russell 3000 companies. 
  • Keynote panelists with CEOs and Corporate Directors of public companies.
  • Roundtables with corporate directors/coaches for informal one-on-one guidance for each attendee.

About 2020 Women on Boards

2020 Women on Boards (2020WOB) is a global education and advocacy campaign committed to building public awareness and momentum toward the goal of achieving at least 20% of all public company board seats to be held by women by year-end 2020, the milestone 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote.  2020WOB identifies and tracks the progress of the Russell 3000 companies, published online, called our 2020WOB Gender Diversity Index. We rank over 3,000 companies in our Gender Diversity Directory on a Winning ‘W’ to Zero ‘Z’ scale based on the gender diversity of companies’ boards of directors. See our Gender Diversity Index here!
