During these unprecedented times, we want to say we were here for you yesterday, we are here for you today and we will be here for you tomorrow. Stay safe my friends.
Also, as we prepare to launch our March Study and with March being Women History Month, we thought it would be a great time to recognize the highly-accomplished women who have earned their seat on the board of the Fortune 50. These powerful women along with the other successful women leaders continue to pave the way for the next generation.
The women noted below are part of a yearlong study SGA Talent conducted in 2019 as a response to the signing of a California bill in 2018, Women on Boards (Senate Bill 826) . The study went beyond the board level to the C-Suite and 2 levels below from the top 3,000 publicly-traded companies with the goal to create a talent pool of the next generation women leaders.
For now congrats to all….You made it and we thank you!
