Episode Description

The Buzz: A seat at the table. Look around the average American corporate board room: women occupy only 1 out of 6 seats. Why should gender imbalance matter to you? How can you get on a board and help other women get there? More broadly, what approaches, policies and strategies could help make this happen? SAP SVP, CLO and series executive producer Jenny Dearborn observes, “The status quo won’t change until we can gently pry open the hands of those controlling our corporate board rooms.” The experts speak. Dr. Dana Ardi, Corporate Anthropology Advisors: “Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.” (George Carlin). Dr. Patti Fletcher, IHS and PSDNetwork: “Your job as a transformational leader is not to change people. It is to enable people to change themselves.” Dr. Lauren M. Doliva, Heidrick & Struggles: “The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity” (Amelia Earhart). Join us for Getting On Board with Women in the Boardroom.
