The Women in Leadership Cohort XVIII of Coro Pittsburgh hosted a special event entitled “Are You On Board?” as a part of our catalytic project to provide Women In Leadership alumni, current CORO fellows, regional board members, women in Southwestern PA and local organizations with a networking, recruiting, and learning opportunity to get more #womenonboard in Southwestern, PA.
Why was this our catalytic project? Because women represent only 13.4% of board seats for Pittsburgh’s top 50 companies.And, many studies show that companies with #womenonboard outperform those without female representation by 5-10%.
After a year of collecting wisdom and completing our catalytic project, the Women in Leadership XVIII cohort of Coro Pittsburgh is pleased to present our manual to help and inspire women to “get on board”. The document is a free e-publication and we hope you will access the knowledge and advice it offers and pass it on to others. Thank you to all our contributors and supporters.
