NEW YORK, July 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- "The inexorable progress that we have been working toward has just reached a tipping point. With at least one woman board director on every S&P 500 company board of directors, it means that women's voices are now being heard where it matters. And this inclusiveness will change everything.
"At WomenCorporateDirectors, we have been working steadily for 18 years to change the face of corporate governance, as well as equip the world's women corporate directors with the best governance skills needed for board service. The latest event in our ongoing networking program for S&P 500 company women board directors, the WCD S&P 500 Director Summit, is scheduled for October 3rd in New York City.
"WCD's 2,400 members sit on more than 5,000 boards across the globe — helping to create new value, see new opportunities, create better environments for business inclusivity, and raise the bar of corporate excellence.
"Now, on to parity!"
—Susan C. Keating, CEO, WomenCorporateDirectors Foundation
