About the Speaker

Nancy Sheppard founded Women2Boards in 2014 and is known as an early thought leader in the movement to bring gender parity to corporate governance. She is also the Chief Board Journey Advisor for The Athena Alliance, a national organization where she coaches executive women who are board ready.
