Hearsay CEO Clara Shih to Speak on Boardroom Equality at Dreamforce

dreamforceIt’s with little exaggeration when we say that Dreamforce, the annual marquee event from, takes over the entire city of San Francisco. This year’s conference (#DF16), which takes place Oct. 4-7, is expecting more than 150,000 attendees, over 2,000 educational sessions and keynotes from Melinda Gates of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Mary T. Barra, CEO of General Motors, and, Jeff Lawson, CEO of Twilio.
This year, we’re excited to share that Clara Shih, Hearsay CEO and Starbucks board director, will keynote the Women & Equality Summit at Dreamforce. Her panel, “Leadership Equality: Women in the Boardroom” (Thursday, Oct. 6, 9:30-10:30am, Moscone West Level 2), will discuss the importance of women representation in the boardroom.
Research shows that Fortune 500 companies with the highest representation of women board directors attained significantly higher financial performance, on average; yet, only 5 percent of Fortune 500 companies have a female CEO.
Clara will be joined by Sukinder Singh Cassidy, who serves on the boards of Ericsson and TripAdvisor and is the founder of theBoardlist, and Claire Hughes Johnson, a member of the board of Hallmark Cards, Inc. and COO of Stripe.
