"The Research Team at theboardiQ identified 100 stellar individuals that are at three stages of maturity for board roles," says Smitashree Menon, Founder & CEO at theboardiQ. "CXOs, CTOs, VPs, EVPs, CIOs, CISOs, CFOs, startup CEOs who are seasoned and board ready. Then there are subject matter experts - exemplars in their own fields, domain experts, doctors, academicians, inventors who need to get some more exposure with shadow board roles and immersive experiences before assuming board responsibilities. And the third category are those individuals making a social impact - be it in the areas of sustainability, human rights, geopolitical influence and government relations, influencing policy and legislation that impact our daily lives. Latinos in the US are the largest racial or ethnic group at 58 million or 18% of the US Population. They command 2.3T of the GDP, driving growth in mass consumer technology, and yet have only 2.2% Representation on Russell 3000 Public Boards. Fortune 1000 companies that do not have a Latino on their board are at a staggering 76.8%. There is a need to be able to showcase as well as groom the next generation of Board Ready Leaders."
