The WomenCorporateDirectors Foundation encourages you to make an impact by donating to support WCD’s mission to increase the number of women in boardrooms and strengthen corporate governance worldwide. 

In this year alone, WCD successfully pivoted to provide valuable virtual programs, including those on WCDirect as well as the 2020 Global Institute and Visionary Awards.

WCD increased the number of new board opportunities posted for members, and we launched the new membership app, WCD Connect. New Peer Groups for board committees, private and family company directors, and key industries have also been launched-and we plan to expand these offerings even further in FY21. It's all about facilitating connectivity.

In addition, WCD actively addressed equity and inclusion from the board perspective. Our initial efforts included:

WomenCorporateDirectors supported the call-to-action for boardroom diversity, equity and inclusion issued by the Diverse Corporate Directors Coalition (DCDC), along with Ascend Pinnacle, the Black Corporate Directors Conference (BCDC), the Latino Corporate Directors Association (LCDA) and Out Leadership’s Quorum. WCD’s 2020 Virtual Global Institute keynote and panel discussions explored challenges and opportunities as boards tackle racial equity. See the press release here. WCD is forming a Diversity Steering Committee to draft, oversee and formulate a diversity plan to ensure short term and longer-term progress - adapting work already completed to date and identifying additional recommendations and action steps. An investment in WCD is an investment in yourself and in other women around the world.

A Call-to-Action for Boardroom Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion



Allyship “If you’re sitting at the boardroom table, are you asking the question about what we are doing to expand opportunities to our employees of color? You’re asking the question that interrupts the status quo. …That’s what allyship is about.”

-Dr. Beverly Tatum, President Emerita, Spelman College; Director, Educational Testing Service and Author


Accountability “Every single one of us is a person of influence.” “It’s time for directors to be part of the solution, to speak up, to ask the tough questions, to expect progress, and to create accountability for the results.”

-Evelyn D’An, Director, Enochian Biosciences and Summer Infant, Inc.
(WCD Member)

 


Opportunities "59% of new directors to the S&P 500 this year are diverse in gender or race. This is the year that we will see boardroom diversity numbers significantly change.”

-Julie Hembrock Daum, Partner and Co-practice Leader of the Board and CEO Practice, Spencer Stuart, Director, Seacoast Banking Corporation, (WCD Member)
 


Catalyst for Change "I give to mission-driven organizations that know why they exist and what they want to do to make the world a better place, now and in the future. By giving a donation, I believe we will continue to advance our mission and realize our goals for greater inclusiveness."

-Evelyn Dilsaver, Director, Blue Shield of CA, Bailard, Healthequity, and Tempur Sealy International (WCD Member)
