Jewelle Bickford and Brenda Trenowden Discuss Gender Parity on Corporate Boards

Companies with greater board diversity typically outperform their less diverse counterparts. Even with this knowledge, women only occupy 18 percent of Fortune 1000 corporate board seats. While corporations are making progress, it is at a sluggish pace. What have organizations such as the 30% Club and movements such as Paradigm for Parity done to alleviate gender inequity, and how can businesses hasten their efforts?

Join Jewelle Bickford, Partner at Evercore Wealth Management, and Brenda Trenowden, Global Chair of the 30% Club, as they dive into discussions on the progress made globally and the obstacles that still plague the drive for gender parity. CED members and Women’s Economic Contribution Co-Chairs Debra Perry and Jane Stevenson will introduce the speakers.
