With more than 1 million business entities taking advantage of Delaware’s attractive incorporation services, it is fitting that Wilmington is getting “on board” with 2020 Women on Boards (2020WOB).

About a year ago when the #MeToo movement was in full swing and creating a societal shift, I wanted to lend my voice to women who needed it. I looked around to see where I could help and was connected to Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, CEO at 2020 Women on Boards, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit campaign created to educate and enable more women to serve on corporate boards of directors, and more companies to seek and select them. 

The goal is to raise the percentage of women on corporate boards in the United States to 20% or greater by next year. The 2018 national statistic was only 17.7%, and it is expected to be higher this year due to intense efforts by 2020WOB and institutional investors to urge companies to add women; and the new California law that requires companies to add women to their boards.
