      More Women on Corporate Boards Impacts All of Us

      2020Women on Boards, an advocacy organization of 50 affiliates, including women's groups, institutional investors and high-profile CEOs, is sending out "W" (for "winner") certificates this month to the 496 companies that have 20 percent or more board seats held by women.

      I am not a fan of having numerous standing board committees for arts organizations.
