Open Table: You need women on your Board of Directors

It’s time that we increased the number of women who serve on corporate boards.
Today I’ve joined with thousands of women across the country to call for diversity in the boardroom. We will be watching closely to see how you take action on this critical issue.

Letter to
mroberts@opentable.com Open Table
I am part of a growing national movement created to diversify corporate boards and I’m writing to ask that you take steps today to diversify the board at Open Table.

Women hold just a small number of corporate board seats. In 2012, of the 2010 Fortune 1000 companies, 15.6% of corporate directors are women. But consider this: women comprise about half of the total U.S. workforce; over half of all managers are women; women are responsible for almost 80% of all consumer spending; and there are over 10 million majority-owned, privately-held, women-owned firms in the U.S., employing over 13 million people and generating over $1.9 trillion in sales.
It’s time that we increased the number of women who serve on corporate boards.
Today I’ve joined with thousands of women across the country to call for diversity in the boardroom. My colleagues and I will be watching closely to see how you take action on this critical issue.
