50/50 Women on Boards™ (50/50WOB), the leading non-profit education and advocacy campaign driving the movement toward gender balance and diversity on corporate boards, hosted its annual Global Conversation on Board Diversity™ series of events in October and November 2022.
More than 200 global, local, and in-kind sponsors and donors partnered with 50/50WOB to drive awareness for the business imperative of gender parity on boards and to provide women in their networks the opportunity to advance by investing in their leadership mobility. Global Sponsors include Equilar, EY, Mastercard®, Bank of America, Marsh, Unum Group, Target, AMN Healthcare, and BTIG, LLC.
The annual events included:
“We are grateful for the support of all our sponsors and in-kind donors. Their commitment advances women by engaging and inviting their networks to our events, workshops, and the Networking Hub, which support a woman’s board journey,” said Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, CEO of 50/50 Women on Boards. “In 2022, we saw a slower pace of women joining corporate boards, so it is more critical now for corporations to invest in women’s leadership mobility. We applaud our enlightened sponsors for helping us accelerate more women to boards.”
Holding a Platinum Transparency Rating on GuideStar, more than 83% of funds raised by 50/50WOB goes directly to support its research, board-readiness workshops, educational events, and advocacy efforts.
