The call for diversity in the boardroom has become even more urgent in 2018 as shareholders and CEOs recognize that diverse leadership teams are key to navigating an increasingly complex global economy. This environment creates a window of opportunity for women lawyers to add diversity while bringing their training and experience in risk management, strategy, and analysis in the boardroom.
