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.

A Board’s Duty On Succession
A board of directors has a fiduciary duty to shareholders to oversee a corporation’s short- and long-term business strategy.
