A Win for Gender Diversity in Boardrooms

CEO & Founder of Women in the Boardroom™, Sheila Ronning, recently penned a piece for Newsmax titled ‘A Win for Gender Diversity in Boardrooms’. The article discusses how SB826, passed in September of 2018, has helped changed the landscape of Boardrooms. Ronning discusses how it has been met with some pushback, “however, thanks to SB 826 the message has been received – loud and clear. As of December 2019, women now hold 21.2% of the board seats of California’s 444 largest corporations, according to 2020 Women on Boards, an education and advocacy organization based in Los Angeles.”
