The Forum for Corporate Directors has gathered a distinguished panel to address the challenges to achieving gender parity on corporation boards including the following issues:

  • What are some of the strategies and tactics utilized in other countries that could move the needle forward in the U.S.?

  • Is the SEC a realistic partner in achieving more accountability from public companies they regulate?

  • What roles can the NYSE and NASDAQ play in addressing the issue, and are they likely to step forward?

  • What are the perspectives and roles of the gatekeepers to achieving better gender parity on public boards such as Chairs of Nomination/Governance Committees; executive search firms; directors; and institutional investors

  • What are the sources of resistance in the US, which continues to lag behind other major markets?
