Upcoming Sessions

Get Onboard: Pathways to Corporate Board Leadership

October 20, 2020--Virtual Event at 8 a.m. 

Lindsay Hammerer, Partner at KPMG and  Past Chair of Milwaukee Women, Inc.
Join Lindsay in a discussion about pathways to corporate board leadership to change the face and quality of leadership in the Wisconsin business community by increasing the number of women corporate directors. In 2018, 12 of the top 50 Wisconsin public companies had three or more women directors on their boards, an increase of 33% from 2017. While this is encouraging, there is still much work to do. This event’s discussion will promote the research concerning the value of diversity in corporate governance and management, and eliminating barriers to full inclusion of women in leadership positions, as well as focusing on the practical conversation of how to navigate and intentionally craft your pathway to corporate board leadership.

Tickets for TEMPO Madison members and guests are $35.
