“Sheila Ronning’s vision for how to empower women to serve in important roles in the boardroom dates back to 2002,” said David R. Koenig, President and Chief Executive Officer of the DCRO Institute. “She’s led the development of a powerful and important network to advance gender diversity. We are thrilled to add our programs to her efforts to bring highly talented women to serve in the boardroom,” he continued.
When I got the call from David to partner with DCRO, I knew right away that this would be a great fit for Women in the Boardroom. We’ve already received comments from our members attending his courses, excited about the quality and program content. We can’t wait to see what’s ahead for our partnership.”
