Building a board

TK Kerstetter conducted a great interview with Linda Rebrovick, Nom/Gov Chair, HealthStream.  She provides valuable information concerning the women’s organizations with directories of experienced women directors.  The challenges she faces as Nom/Gov Chair:  Board Evaluations guide the company to have the right board with proper skills, expertise, and diversity.  Diverse groups drive the board to better answers.  Diversity of thought leads to diversity of race, gender, and international expertise.  Women’s organizations:  ION (15 chapters with 10,000 women), Women Business Leaders in US Healthcare, Women Corporate Directors – the only global women’s director organization – 1350 women on 1500 boards.  There is no lack of qualified candidates and these organizations provide qualified candidates for boards to consider.
