Career decisions you make today can help you  stand out as a corporate board candidate tomorrow. Join Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, author of The Board Game, for a lively discussion on the undeniable business case for having more women corporate directors at the decision-making tables of America's public companies.


"Getting more women on more boards takes the same kind of strategies as any complex game, one well-planned move after another."
