About the Event

Athena On Boards Offers Board Room Pipeline

The S&P 500 just announced its last remaining all-male corporate board added its first female board director. As California’s deadline approaches for publicly traded California general corporations or registered foreign corporations to include at least one woman on their board by the end of 2019, local and statewide companies have their work cut out for them. A California Secretary of State report indicates only 184 out of 537 publicly-traded California corporations have met this new legislative mandate, as of July 1, 2019, and at least twenty San Diego companies have yet to name a woman to their board. And they better act fast, as the law’s provisions require those companies with five members to have at least two women on their boards, and at least three women for those with six or more members, effective end of 2021.

ENTER ATHENA | For San Diego companies eager to access and recruit executive women to diversify their board and expand their board competencies, look no farther. Athena On Boards is a cohort of executive women in STEM that prepares board placement strategies, assigns mentoring teams from Athena’s bench of industry experts and executive recruiters, and significantly elevates profiles over the 5-month program. 

"As the voice of women in STEM, Athena offers a deep bench of executive women ready to help companies modernize their board room," said Holly Smithson, Athena CEO. "And through this program, we reduce the scouting time and due diligence associated with these critically important board placements," Smithson continued.

The first Athena On Boards has concluded and we are proud to introduce the first cohort of Athena On Boards Certified women seeking board placement! IS YOUR BOARD PLACEMENT STRATEGY READY? If you’re interested in helping California companies modernize their board room and want to participate in Athena’s Women on Board’s Series Cohort III,  and for companies interested in accessing these STEM executives for your board search, contact: holly@athenasd.org.
