The 2012 Global Conference on Women in the Boardroom will bring together in Washington, DC, corporate executives, government officials and corporate stakeholders worldwide to focus on initiatives underway around the globe to achieve gender balance on corporate boards. We will talk with the CEOs and board chairs of companies that have championed gender diversity, and hear from international coalitions of business leaders who are working to accelerate progress. Our day-long forum will also feature stakeholders – institutional investors, executive search firms, and corporate governance experts — who are using their financial clout, advisory roles, and regulatory oversight to facilitate change. We will be updated on research on the impact of gender diversity in the boardroom.
