Our Mission

Increasing the Number of Women in Executive Leadership and on Corporate Boards

Our History

OnBoard, formerly the Board of Directors Network (BDN), was founded in 1993 by Margaret “Peggy” (Espinda) LaFreniere. Inspired by a conference put on by The International Alliance for Women regarding women on boards, Peggy and the 37 other charter members started OnBoard. The initial focus was on increasing the number of women on corporate boards of both public and private companies. The mission later expanded to include women in leadership positions because those women were in the best position to fill the pipeline of qualified women to serve on corporate boards.

OnBoard was among the first organizations in the country to recognize that the mission to increase the number of women on boards would require an organized effort. And the first, in the United States, to field a study benchmarking the number of women on corporate boards. The OnBoard study has been reporting progress for Georgia public companies since 1993. OnBoard was a founding member of ION, the InterOrganization Network, a national nonprofit umbrella organization dedicated to increasing the number of women on for-profit boards and in executive suites. 

Today, OnBoard has grown into a prestigious organization as the leading authority on women in the boardroom and executive suites of Georgia public companies. OnBoard advocates for women, inspires them to take leadership, and connects them to opportunities. The organization gives out two awards annually: OnBoard Excellence Award and the Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Award

Founding and The First Study

Measured the number of women board members and women officers in Georgia’s public companies, determining the percentage of positions held by women. The study also measured the percentage of companies with no women board members or officers

Only 1/4 of the 150 Georgia public companies tracked had women directors, accounting for only 4% of all board seats.

7% Women

7% of Executive Officers in Georgia’s top public companies were women.

Advocacy Efforts Amplified

OnBoard’s advocacy efforts were significantly amplified by funding that supported the distribution of the study to every public company in Georgia. The study gained visibility (quoted in The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Atlanta Business Chronicle and The Wall Street Journal), and helped grow membership and event attendance, and most importantly, it attracted major sponsors, many of whom have supported OnBoard for over a decade.

Well Ahead of Its Time

OnBoard added the measurement of board seats held by women of color. A little over half of 1% of board seats were held by women of color.

The Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Award

Awarded to the woman board member who has served as an outstanding role model for advancing the mission of increasing the number of women in executive leadership and on corporate boards.

12 Charter Members Become the First Class of OnBoard Advocates

Launched in 2005, the Advocates List is comprised of industry leaders who have accepted the invitation to financially support OnBoard at a leadership level. Advocates bring their vision and passion to support the mission of OnBoard to increase the number of women in executive leadership and on corporate boards. Today, the Advocates List consists of nearly 300 members.

OnBoard Excellence Award

Awarded annually to three Georgia based women leaders to highlight OnBoard’s mission to increase the number of women in executive leadership.

21 Years

The number of women directors has doubled, and the percentage of board seats held by women rose to 11.5% – representing great progress, but also illustrating how far there is to go before OnBoard’s work is done. Even as the number of executive officers decreases, the women executive officers reached 10% in 2008 and stay close to that percentage with no significant breakout – 9.8% this year. The share of board seats held by women of color has the furthest to go – yet to exceed 2%

Next OnBoard Created

OnBoard created Next OnBoard in 2014 to engage motivated early- and mid-career professionals as they travel the path to senior leadership and perhaps board service. OnBoard was the first group in ION to deliver such a program.

Women Hold 12.9%

Women hold 12.9% (123) of the 952 total board seats in Georgia’s public companies. The Power of 3 or critical mass is considered at least 3 or more women on a company’s board. There is an encouraging emerging trend indicating that companies with critical mass are increasing. In the 2016 study the companies meeting this critical mass definition at the time of the data cutoff are*: Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen (4), Genuine Parts (4), The Coca-Cola Company (4), Carter’s, EarthLink Holdings, Gray Television, Halyard Health, Haverty Furniture Companies, Primerica, The Home Depot and UPS®. *(Three women unless otherwise noted.) But there is still work to be done. Men hold 87% of the board seats. There are 50 (40%) Georgia public companies that have no women on board. Women of color in Georgia lag the national stats for percentage of board seats.

Women Hold 19.8%

Women hold 19.8% (176) of the 889 total board seats in Georgia’s public companies. There are a record 26 Power of 3 companies with least 3 or more women on a company’s board. The fill rate is 28%, which means that 28% of the open board seats were filled by women. This leading indicator is promising for future progress. There are NO all-male boards in the Georgia Top 50 companies by revenue. United Parcel Service is leading the way with 6 women on board followed by The Coca-Cola Company at 5 women. However, Women of Color hold only 3.7% of board seats which is still an area for needed special focus. Also not increasing substantially are the women executive officers, flat at 14.4%, 15.5% and 15.6% for the last three years. With the exception of these two areas, the study years 2018 through 2020 have shown increased progress over prior years. This momentum is encouraging.

Measuring Progress

From its inception, OnBoard has been a pioneer in its approach to getting more women on corporate boards. The organization was the first to field a study to measure the status of women on corporate boards. Recognizing that hard numbers are more compelling than prose, OnBoard strives to make the case for a problem that needs to be addressed while creating an essential benchmark for measuring progress and proving efficacy.

Guided by the philosophy that “what gets measured gets done”, OnBoard prepared and reported results of the first study in 1993, promoting it as a progress report for Georgia public companies, as well as a yardstick for the work yet to be done. Executive officers for the purposes of the study are only those listed by the companies in their SEC filings, which includes but may not be exclusive to the “Named Executive Officers”.

Sponsor Spotlight

Celebrating our 30th Anniversary in 2022, OnBoard recognizes the organizations that have paved the way for women in corporate leadership. During this month’s Sponsor Spotlight, we are proud to recognize The Coca-Cola Company as the place where women on boards became a reality: in 1934, Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans was appointed to Coca-Cola’s board of directors, a position she held for nearly 20 years.

OnBoard’s most prestigious award is named after this early trailblazer for women in corporate leadership positions. During the Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Award Dinner on Thursday, November 3, we will present the award to Kathy Waller, longtime Coca-Cola CFO and OnBoard board member. Read more about the award here: Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Award – OnBoard (onboardnow.org)

Thanks to Coca-Cola for paving the way and continuing your steadfast support of OnBoard.

Become a Sponsor

Get Involved And Help Us Achieve Our Goal Today

OnBoard is a 501(c)3 designated nonprofit that provides educational programs, research and professional development opportunities. Corporations provide financial sponsorship because they see the value for their brand as well as the opportunities for professional development. Many of our sponsors also share their talented people with OnBoard through service to our board, and by connecting us with their professional networks.

Visibility for Sponsors

Annual sponsors are continuously recognized in communications across all mediums. At each of our three major events annual sponsors are highlighted.

Our audience for these events is typically 150 to 250 attendees, men and women from corporations, government agencies, academia, professional services firms, and the media as well as members of boards. The topics and speakers are consistent with OnBoard’s mission and often draw sold-out crowds.

At each major event, sponsors have:

  •  Invitations to the event
  •  Logo on the invitations, event signs and collateral materials
  •  Special recognition from the podium and in the printed program at the event
Education for Key People

As talented people move up in an organization, it becomes increasingly challenging to meet their development needs with exclusively internal experiences. We offer programming and networking opportunities that help your highly talented people expand their thinking as well as their professional contacts.

Annual sponsors participate in the major events as well as others not open to the public. These include presentations by authors, networking, or inclusion in private events held by other organizations with whom OnBoard is aligned.
