If you are unwilling to help other women, you aren't welcome here
BY SHEILA RONNING, CEO & FOUNDER
The foundation of Women in the Boardroom is women helping other women. We encourage females to connect and learn from one another on their journeys to the boardroom and provide each other with the inspiration, guidance and knowledge to ultimately advance their careers. I find women are more than willing to assist each other in these ways. In fact, if you arenâ€™t willing, you are not welcome at Women in the Boardroom. It is that simple. READ MORE...

KICK-OFF SPEAKER AT THE NYC SIGNATURE EVENT
How has your history in the media (Fox News, NBC's "The Today Show", CNBC) impacted the way you view board service?
It has influenced my perspective immeasurably. In the past, I have gravitated toward fast paced career paths. On Wall Street, I traded billions daily. The pace was frenetic. In media, I interpreted financial data and the health of the economy while covering elections and legislation in Washington DC. In both careers, I learned how quickly a message can get out and how important it is to have a clear, consistent communication plan, especially given how bifurcated a message often becomes in todayâ€™s world of social media and citizen journalism. You need to know which channels to best share and amplify your message with, and solicit feedback from your audience and that relationship has to be authentic. As CEO of GENYOUth, I feel a fiduciary responsibility to make sure my Board of Directors understands the clarity of our organizational message and what I am doing to amplify it. If I provide them with the tools to help them spread our message through multiple media channels, I empower them to leverage their networks of influencers. A media plan and a media strategy is critical to any company or organization and it should be a top priority for every Board of Directors. READ MORE OF THE Q&A HERE...
