Our founders have all been corporate leaders
and directors for many years, and made our initial “breaks” through the glass
ceiling and other invisible barriers at least two decades ago. Today,
we are heartened to see that the sheer number of women and minorities
who are making similar breakthroughs is awe inspiring… and growing
rapidly. It is this growing pool of ambitious talent that we seek
to support and advance.
The all too common lament we hear from fellow
board members – "I
can’t find any qualified women or minorities for my board" – is
quite simply not true. We each personally know many such individuals.
But we also realize there are many, many more of you whom we don’t
know. So we encourage you to contact us.
If you are interested in, and feel you are qualified
for, public board service, please send us your resume and a note
background, interests and area(s) in which you feel you could make
the strongest contribution. The Directors’ Council’s database
of candidates is extensive, powerful and growing daily… which
is overwhelming proof that we’ve come a long way.
