From the Publisher"This volume outlines the steps women can take to become qualified and competent directors on for-profit or corporate boards. Ghaffari describes the six most prominent paths to success and women directors who followed them through nonprofit, academic, government, corporate, investment, and entrepreneurship fields. Fifteen women from California
Fortune 1000 firms (as of 2006-2007) are profiled. The profiles include discussion about their decisions, lessons learned, and various positions. Ghaffari is associated with a technology advisory firm. Her Surveys of Women on Boards of Directors at California-Based Fortune 1000 Firms provided the biographical and research foundation for the volume."
