Watermark member Olga Mack is certainly doing her part to increase the number of women in leadership positions – specifically the number of women who serve on boards of directors. As the founder of Women Serve on Boards, Olga and her team use social media campaigns, letters and petitions to corporate leaders, urging them to make inclusion of women and diversity a priority.
Steadily and surely, Women Serve on Boards is making a positive impact. Land O’Lakes recently added Joyce A. Cacho to its advisory board and Discovery Communication added Susan M. Swain to its board of directors.
Over the past few weeks, Women Serve on Boards has rolled out a new F500 social media campaign focused on the remaining 20 Fortune 500 companies that have yet to appoint a woman to their board of directors.
Stay tuned. More good news is in the works, no doubt about it! Please show your support on Twitter by following @BoardsWomen!
