According to the Boardroom Project, 51% of the population and almost half of the nation’s workforce are women, yet they are still significantly underrepresented in boardrooms across the country. The Government Accountability Office estimates it could take more than four decades of women’s representation on boards in order to approach parity with their male counterparts. The Boardroom Project aims to cut that target date by half by educating and exposing young girls to the business sector to kickstart their careers. This nonprofit also provides professional women the support they need to climb the corporate ladder through various board positions on corporate and non-profit boards. Guest: Salena Santibanez.
