While women are only 21% of c-suite leaders, 9-15% of small to mid-cap public company directors, 7% of private company directors, 9% of investors, and 5% of CEOs...nonetheless, over 600,000 women have made it to the VP ranks and above in companies with over 500 employees. At Athena we've worked with over 1,000 of these women. We've learned what propelled them success, and we've learned what it takes to accelerate the success of those who will follow. I will share my story, and that of many amazing women around me who have made it to the c-suite and the boardroom. I'll also share the state of women in leadership today, and the change in society and business that is good news for women wanting to rise more quickly and more broadly. These societal shifts are shaping a Modern Boardroom different from anything we've known before and this in turn is creating incredible opportunity for women.
