WE SAN FRANCISCO | SPECIAL EVENT: WOMEN ON BOARDS

Join us for a lively discussion on the new California legislation mandating public companies to have women on their boards by 2020, the implications, and steps we can take!

The San Francisco chapter of Women in ETFs invites you to an event to celebrate the great progress being made in getting more women on corporate boards.

California SB 826, which took effect Jan. 1, 2019, requires that all publicly traded companies headquartered in the state have at least one female director by the end of this year, and a minimum of three by 2021 for companies with six or more total directors.

Numerous independent research studies have shown that having gender diversity on corporate boards is beneficial to the corporation, including increasing profitability, better performance, governance, innovation, and opportunity. Yet, only one-fourth of California's publicly-held corporations have women directors on their boards.

With the passing of this law in California and bold actions taken by the asset management firms, the movement for more women on corporate boards is at the forefront for corporate governance.

Please join us for a lively discussion on this important topic. Our board experts will lead a discussion on:

  • Understanding the context and importance of the California legislation mandating women on public boards by 2020
  • How to accelerate the rate of women joining boards
  • Challenges and opportunities of being a woman on a public board
