and Executive Search Firms invited to access database of
Ready Women (GBRW) on International Women’s Day
More than 8000
women being vetted by 150 Leading Business Schools and Professional Business
Organizations and Associations from 56 countries and growing every day.
Business Schools/Women on Board initiative notes
the Board Level positively influencing pipe.
08 March 2013: The European Business School/Women on Board
initiative which launched the Global Board Ready Women (GBRW) searchable
database on 12/12/12 is now inviting executive search firms, companies and
investors and those looking to make appointments on the boards of publicly
quoted firms to access their database, just three months after its launch.
Already the more than 150 leading business schools,
professional business organizations and corporate women from 56 countries
constituting the initiative have vetted almost 2000 women out of a list of more
than 8000 and the database is growing as fast as the candidates can be vetted.
The women in the GBRW searchable database come from
all sectors of business from all over the world and are vetted according to
quantitative and qualitative criteria established by the business schools and
professional associations for service on a publicly quoted firms board before
being admitted to the GBRW Database. http://www.fortefoundation.org/site/PageServer?pagename=gi_boards. Once the qualified women have been accepted
in to the GBRW LinkedIn Group, they may also access more than 500,000
corporations and Boards around the world in an agreement arranged by the
European Business Schools/Women on Board initiative with BoardEx, (http://boardex.com).
In addition to providing a searchable database of
Global Board Ready Women ready to assume the responsibilities of transparent,
accountable, global and diverse Corporate Governance in the 21st century,
the group is pleased to see that this action has inspired a host of other
activities, curricula, awareness, aspirations and human capital development across
the entire pipe of women talent. Shattering the glass ceiling of the Board Room
enables women to see light at the end of the tunnel. They can now work and aspire towards an
achievable goal, helped by those who have gone before them as well as the
Business Schools and Professional Business Organizations and Associations,
themselves creating synergistic programs amongst themselves to prepare and
strengthen the pool of female talent from manager to executive to Board member.
The GBRW welcomes requests from all of the
Executive Search Firms and Corporations in the world to join the group and
access its growing database of qualified Board Ready Women. Please contact the GBRW Administrator: Heidi Gains (Heidi.firstname.lastname@example.org)
All Board Ready Women desiring to join the group
should contact their Business Schools or Professional Associations if they are a
participating member http://www.uploadlibrary.com/nonexecs/GBRWGroupslistamendedFeb2013.pdf
