Within the next few weeks, Facebook Inc., the world’s largest social network, will become a publicly traded company. This is expected to be the largest Initial Public Offering (IPO) in Silicon Valley history. At present, the Facebook Board of Directors is made up of seven men.
Vision 2020 supports the campaign asking Facebook to add women to its board. Why? Facebook has built its fabulous success on its appeal to women. The majority of Facebook’s 800 million users are women. Most of its content is produced by women. Most of its profits are derived from women. Adding qualified women to its board will demonstrate Facebook’s recognition of women’s leadership.
