How Can Boards & C-Suites Increase Gender Diversity?

September 28, 2018

In 2017, CED launched the Advancing Women in Corporate Leadership initiative, which seeks to encourage corporations to increase female representation in leadership positions. As part of the effort, CED is conducting a series of podcasts that focus on the experiences of women in leadership roles and practical steps both women and companies can take to advance women in corporate leadership.

In this episode, Mike Petro sits down with Janice Ellig, CEO of Ellig Group, a leading executive search firm, to discuss how she and her company are helping to increase gender diversity on boards and in C-Suites across various industries.
