The National Retail Federation and theBoardlist, a talent marketplace for executives and board directors, have announced a strategic partnership intended to improve gender diversity in corporate boardrooms in retail and other industries.
Through the new partnership, made possible with exclusive support from VISA, NRF and theBoardlist will work to expand the network of senior leaders and board directors working to discover and promote outstanding board-ready women to achieve more balanced corporate governance.
Female retail executives from thousands of NRF associate and retail member companies based in the United States can join the NRF gateway into theBoardlist’s private network to be discovered in board searches from private and public companies across the country.
Candidate requirements include NRF company membership, vice president-level and higher female executive and U.S.-based physical residency.
All NRF member executives currently holding board positions will also be able to search and leverage the platform to fill board seats.
For more information on how to be discovered for board opportunities or to discover endorsed, board-ready women for your organization’s open board seats, please email us.
If you are a female executive interested in raising your hand or you would like to nominate a board-ready female executive, please fill out the nomination form. All nominees must belong to NRF member companies.
