The New York Women’s Forum will host the third biennial “Breakfast of Corporate Champions” on Thursday November 19th at Cipriani on 42nd Street.
The Breakfast of Corporate Champions is chaired by Co-CEO of Chadick Ellig, Janice Ellig, and “will salute companies leading the way to gender balance on corporate boards.” The event salutes companies with at least 20% of board seats held by women. Top CEOs and leading business executives will discuss why having more women on boards is a strategic business imperative.
The Council for Economic Development of the Conference Board is working with the New York Women’s Forum to elevate more women on Corporate Boards and the breakfast will be followed by “a special Symposium focusing on how nominating and governance committees can and should accelerate change, why the investment community thinks gender balance matters and how the US compares to other regions putting the talent of women to work on boards for a global competitive advantage.”
