Athena on Boards Series
Prepares to Feed Boardroom Pipeline
Registration Now Open for Athena on Boards Cohort 3
Athena On Boards (AOB) Program Series is launching its third cohort and is open for registration. As the voice of women in STEM, Athena offers a deep bench of executive women ready to help companies modernize their boardroom. This Virtual Series is designed to continually feed our pipeline of board-ready STEM candidates.
Several market events continue to generate strong demand for recruiting women in the boardroom: 1) Goldman Sachs announced at the World Economic Forum that they will not take any company public without women on their boards; 2) California public companies are now looking ahead to comply with the second leg of the California law: SB 826. By the end of next year, this law calls for California-based companies to have at least two female directors on five-member boards, and at least three female directors on boards with six or more members and, 3) CA Sec of State released its March 2020 compliance report of those companies subject to SB 826. 330 of the 653 impacted companies filed a statement and 282 self-reported compliance with the law.
"As the voice of women in STEM, Athena offers a deep bench of executive women ready to help companies modernize their boardroom and drive performance," Athena CEO Holly Smithson said. "The Athena On Boards Cohort I & II represent a diverse pipeline primed for board placement in companies and non-profits."
