Training for Would-Be Women Directors

Only 14.6% of Fortune 500 companies have a woman on their board of directors.  The DirectWomen Institute, sponsored by the ABA and Catalyst (a research group focused on women in the workplace) seeks to change that.  The New York Times reports on its efforts to groom women lawyers who are "of a certain age" and nearing retirement to serve on boards.  See NYTimes, Female Lawyers Set Sights on Yet One More Goal: A Seat on a Board.
