With the historic passing of SB 826, and the asset management firms requiring action on diversifying boards, there will be a minimum of 170 public company board seats that need to be filled this year. 
Join us November 15 at the Sutter Club in Sacramento to meet decision-makers and board directors, learn latest Russell 3000 diversity data and hear both sides on what the new legislation means for business.
