Los Angeles - California - US

Dec. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Women today hold only 16% of the seats on boards of directors of Fortune 500 corporations, according to 2011 Catalyst research.  In California, only 9.7% of board seats at the state's largest 400 companies are held by women.  More than one-third of California's largest 400 companies have no women board members, according to UC Davis Study on California Women Business Leaders, Dec 2010.  

Renee Fraser and Betsy Berkhemer, co-hosts of  KFWB Radio show "Unfinished Business," and major women's organizations 85Broads, Broads Circle and Women Corporate Directors, invite working women to learn about serving on corporate boards on 12/12/12 (Dec. 12, 2012).  This is the Los Angles anchor of the nationwide day of events in 25 major cities coordinated by the Boston-based 2020 Women on Boards campaign.  

Current women corporate directors will inspire and encourage women by recounting how they were selected by public corporate boards--including Wendy Webb on the board of Jack-in-the-Box; Edith Perez on Conway Inc. freight services, and Joan Herman on Convergys, a customer service technology company.

The 12/12/12 luncheon will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at the City Club, downtown Los Angeles, 333.S. Grand Ave.  Registration is $65, including a $20 contribution to the 2020WOB campaign to urge public companies to achieve at least 20% representation by women on their boards of directors by the year 2020--which is the 200th anniversary of the Women's Right to Vote--the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  

"Unfinished Business" with Betsy and Renee is an hour-long radio show about business, airing every Sunday afternoon on KFBW Newstalk 980-AM, in the Southern California region.  Co-hosts are two successful business owners--Renee owns Fraser Communications, one of the largest woman-owned advertising agencies in the west, and Betsy is co-owner of Berkhemer Clayton, one of the few retained executive search firms with woman majority owner.
