Join West Monroe at Ellevate Network's "The Journey towards Corporate Board Service."
Are you curious about what it really means to get onto and be on a corporate board? We’ll be joined by a panel of advocates who are actively helping other women – and companies – bring the talents and skills of women to corporate board positions.
According to 2020 Women on Boards, women held ~24% of board seats in the 15 Fortune 1000 companies located here in our State of Washington. A 2018 BOA/Merrill Lynch study reports that companies with high scores in board diversity, women in management, and company policies on diversity/inclusion generally saw lower price and EPS volatility and higher subsequent ROEs than those with low scores.

Panelists include:
  • Joanna Lohkamp who serves as a corporate board director for multiple private companies and also on the NW Chapter board of National Association of Corporate Directors, and as an advisor to Stanford University’s program on Women on Boards.
  • Deanna Oppenheimer, founder of CameoWorks and who serves as a corporate board director and advisor for multiple public and private companies
  • Barbara Bennett, who recently served as President & COO of Vulcan, Inc. and presently serves on the board of Cascade Public Media. 
  • Cate Goethals [Moderator], who leads two programs at UW Foster School - Women in Leadership and Women on Boards.
