Gerri Elliott Launches Broadrooms

Way to Go Gerri Elliott on the Launch of Broadrooms!




Gerri ElliottOur good friend and former Generation W speaker Gerri Elliott recently launched Broadrooms, a comprehensive resource for executive women who serve or want to serve on boards of directors. Elliott says the site remedies the lack of freely available information on the topic she encountered when she sought board roles following a long career in executive leadership at IBM, Microsoft and Juniper Networks.

Elliott hopes the site will help women equip themselves to obtain board seats, especially since 54% of Fortune 500 companies are actively looking for female board members. “There is a heightened focus on diversity on boards,” she said. “Not only should executive women be thinking about board service as a natural extension to our careers, we ought to be more proactive in preparing and heightening our visibility as candidates. Broadrooms is intended to help women do just that.”
