Fabulous news, ladies! Governor Brown signed Toni Atkins’ bill which requires California-based, publicly-traded companies to have at least 33% women on their Boards of Directors.
Think you don’t have the experience to serve on a Board of Directors? The education? Gravitas in the business world? None of that matters — the only relevant requirement is your gender. Here’s the best part — you don’t have to offer an opinion to the Chairman of the Board or the CEO. You only have to be a woman.
Here’s your prospecting list. Get busy because the average compensation for a Director at a publicly-traded company is $50,000 to $200,000.
PS — As the husband to a woman, and father of a woman, I am excited about this bill and hope to get rich off of it.
