Athena on Boards Series

Prepares to Feed Boardroom Pipeline

Athena On Boards (AOB) Program Series is launching its sixth cohort on March 25 and is open for registration!

 

This cohort size is intimate by design and, therefore, very limited in available seats. As the voice of women in STEM, Athena prepares a deep bench of executive women ready to help companies modernize their boardroom. This Virtual Series is designed to continually fuel the talent pipeline of diverse board-ready STEM candidates.

  

STEM leaders can expect to join this virtual 3-Part Series over a 5-month period to:

  • Inform your company board selection and placement strategies

  • Join an intimate and dedicated mentoring group - led by a seasoned female director - for  accountability and boardroom plan execution

  • Access a roster of CA boardroom opportunities

  • Direct exposure to local VC firms and recruiting firms as channels to access their integral networks

 

Significant market forces continue to generate strong demand for women on boards in 2021:  

  • STATE STREET | Effective 2021, State Street notified its investment companies to provide “specific communications” to shareholders regarding  (1) the role of diversity in the company’s human capital management practices and strategy, (2) the company’s goals regarding diversity, (3) measures of the diversity of the company’s board and global employee base, (4) goals for racial and ethnic representation at the board level, including how the board reflects the diversity of the company’s key stakeholders beyond investors, and (5) the board’s role in oversight of diversity and inclusion. 

  • SB 826 | By the end of 2021, California-based companies must install at least two female directors on five-member boards, and at least three female directors on boards with six or more members

  • NASDAQ | In December 2020, Nasdaq issues its own diversity mandate that will require listed companies to have at least two diverse board members, including one person who self-identifies as female and one person who self-identifies as an underrepresented minority or LGBTQ+. An underrepresented minority, Nasdaq clarifies, is anyone who self-identifies as Black or African American; Hispanic or Latinx; Native American or Alaska Native; Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander; or Asian.

  • CA Secretary of State | In March 2020 | California released its compliance report of those companies subject to SB 826. They found that 330 of the 653 impacted companies filed a statement and 282 self-reported compliance with the law. 

  • GOLDMAN SACHS | In January 2020, Goldman Sachs CEO announced at the World Economic Forum that they will not take any company public without women on their boards.
