Think Boards are Boring? Think Again

Delegate: Dayna Stock
State: Missouri

 

 

As part of her Vision 2020 State Initiative, Stock is working to increase the number of women serving on corporate, public and non-profit boards. The first objective is to increase the number of women on boards. The second objective is to persuade entities – corporations, elected officials and non-profit organizations – that there is value in diversity, so they actively seek to recruit and place more women on their boards.

The first objective is to increase the number of women on boards. The short-term objective is to increase awareness of opportunities, resulting in increased applications to the Sue Shear Institute Talent Bank Database and the BoardLink STL portal by 2013. The long-term goal for this objective is to increase the number of women serving on public, corporate and nonprofit boards by an average of 50% by 2016.

The second objective is to persuade entities – corporations, elected officials and non-profit organizations – that there is value in diversity, so that they actively seek to recruit and place more women on their boards. The short-term objective is to build on existing relationships to stress the value of diversity and ensure appointers and recruiters understand that women are interested in board appointments.  In the long-term, the hope is for all non-profit boards, 50% of public boards and commissions and some percentage of corporate boards will be comprised of 50% women by 2016.
