Diverse Voices Matter: Women on Boards of Directors

Wednesday, June 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm • Organized By Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce
Online Event


Nearly one in 10 boards have no women leadership. Among the largest 3,000 U.S. publicly traded companies, only one in five board members are women. 


Gender diversity on a board is one way to bring diverse perspectives to an organization. Women serving on boards helps to broaden the talent at all levels. 


That’s why the KC Chamber’s Women’s Leadership programming is hosting a virtual discussion with Karen Daniel, 2020 ATHENA Award Recipient and retired Black & Veatch CFO, Wendy Doyle, President & CEO of United WE, Luann Feehan, President & CEO of Nonprofit Connect, and Nicole Jacobs-Silvey, President & Founder of Connection Coach KC. 


The panel will address the definitions of various boards and governance structures, share the type of experience needed to be successful in board service, how to prepare for board service by asking the right questions, and answer your burning questions about this important topic.
