Women and the “New” Corporate Governance

In response to Enron, WorldCom and similar corporate accounting scandals, Sarbanes-Oxley and other reform measures have sought to alter the atmosphere in America’s corporation. These measures require changes in corporate governance structures and impose new responsibilities on corporate officers, directors and agents. This conference not only seeks to explore whether these changes will impact the ability of women to secure and successfully retain positions within corporations, but also seeks to analyze whether having women in various corporate roles has any impact on the manner in which the corporation responds to these new changes and responsibilities. Thus, in addition to providing some data on the status of women in corporate America, panelists will discuss the issues women confront in their various roles of monitoring, managing and advising the corporation, and the extent to which they believe gender impacts one’s ability to successfully confront those issues.
