Winning the Board Game

Winning the Board Game:
How Women Corporate Make THE Difference

by Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire

Women on corporate boards is strictly a business issue. Independent research studies demonstrate that public companies with women on their boards are more profitable, more productive, and their workforce is better engaged.

Even more compelling, shareholders large and small have the best chance for positive returns on their investments when women are on the boards.

Author Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire profiles fifty-three women corporate directors who have made the important difference on their boards. Berkhemer-Credaire’s newest book expands beyond her first book and explains the value women bring to boards—insights and counsel for board-seekers and current directors to advance more women to corporate boards.
