Thank you Christina de Vaca for sharing your experiences and expertise regarding how we can map out our journey to a boardroom seat. You demonstrated several scenarios of how we can leverage our professional background in finance to find a place in the boardroom.

As Christina mentioned last night, here are a series of links that might be helpful.  The first 11 are from the CALSTERS governance website. They are very active in encouraging gender equality on public boards and many of the studies Christina mentioned can be found here.   She also provided a link to the CALSTRS website itself: We appreciate your sharing the links to the following:
