“More women are on big company boards, but the numbers are still shockingly low”

“It’s not about women vs. men. It’s about companies achieving a competitive advantage by reflecting their employees, their consumers, their communities and their shareholders and tapping into not 50% of the talent pool, but 100% to build the best boards and the best C-suites,” said Janice Ellig, a past president of the Women’s Forum and CEO of the Ellig Group, an executive search firm.

Why More Women are Needed in the Boardroom

On Nov. 7 about 650 executives will gather at Cipriani 42nd Street for the Women’s Forum of New York’s Breakfast of Corporate Champions. The biennial event recognizes S&P 500/Fortune 1,000 companies with corporate boards that include at least 30% women. Recruiting executive Janice Ellig launched the breakfast in 2011, when she was head of the forum, as a way to encourage companies to include more women as board members. Back then the event honored firms with just 20% female directors, so there’s been progress. Ellig’s ultimate goal, though, is full gender parity in the boardroom.

The Boardroom and C-Suite Challenge – Gender Parity

BOOKS

Janice Ellig is the co-author of two highly regarded books:

What Every Successful Woman Knows

Acknowledged by Bloomberg Businessweek as “the best of its genre,” Janice’s first book offers 12 proven strategies for women who have set their sights on the executive suite. Derived, in part, from in-depth interviews with more than 200 successful senior corporate women, these strategies embody an array of critical dos and don’ts—from building a power base to avoiding becoming a generalist (multi-specialize instead)—and a range of key tactical behaviors, such as bonding with your boss, exuding authority, and seizing the significant and dumping the insignificant. Together these strategies constitute a coherent action plan for getting the power in an organization and wielding it effectively.
