NAWBO Phoenix to Present April 10 Point/Counter Point Program About Legislating Number of Women on Corporate Boards

Scottsdale, AZ, March 20, 2019 --( Should publicly-owned companies be required to have a minimum number of women on their boards of directors? The Phoenix Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) will present a point/counter point presentation on this topic for its Advocacy Day on Wednesday, April 10, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Kina Harding of The Harding Firm and the Arizona Black Bar, and Susan Schultz of The Board Institute and Women on Boards, will consider the pros and cons of the recently-enacted California Senate Bill 826. The legislation requires publicly-held companies based in California to have a minimum of one woman on their boards of directors by the end of 2019. From there, women’s representation will have to increase. By the end of 2021, companies need to have at least two women on boards of five members and at least three women on boards with six or more people.

The program will be moderated by Jordan Rose of The Rose Law Group.

“We invite business owners to join us on April 10 to learn more about this topic from both sides and watch how civil dialogue can work to inform, educate and enlighten,” says Ronit Urman, 2018-19 NAWBO Phoenix President.

NAWBO’s monthly business program includes the presentation, lunch, program discussion, and time for networking. Meetings are held at the Gainey Ranch Golf Club (7600 E. Gainey Club Dr.) in Scottsdale. Tickets are $43 for members and $53 for guests. Reserve or get additional information online at
