On Wednesday, January 29th, Deloitte & Touche LLP held an enlightening and widely attended event entitled, “Diversifying the American Board” at its office located at 30 Rockefeller Center. FWA Members and others in attendance were part of three exciting sessions:
- “Finding the Right Fit: Private Company Boards” was sponsored in conjunction with The Directorship & Corporate Governance Committee of the Financial Women’s Association (FWA). Panelists focused on highlighting the differences between working on private vs. public boards and the elements you should be aware of in order to see ongoing success in both areas.
- “Making Decisions Under Pressure” brought together thought leaders to speak about being prepared for many types of “what if” scenarios.
- “Knowing the Role: What CEO’s Really Think of Their Boards” featured real life stories told by top executives who have overcome countless challenges in their industry.
Additionally, a networking reception was held immediately following the panel to give attendees the chance to converse with and ask questions directly to key leaders in their respective field. After participating in the “Diversifying the American Board” seminar, registered participants who signed up for CPE credits received 3.5 credits in the areas of specialized knowledge and applications.
Be sure to stay tuned for more exciting events coming from the FWA and its President’s Circle Members!
