Break Through The Glass Ceiling With Tips From ‘The Board Game’

STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Are you a woman looking to make it to the top?

Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, author of “The Board Game–How Smart Women Become Corporate Directors” visited the KCAL9 studios Wednesday to talk us about her book.

The book spells out step-by-step guidelines for women to ultimately win their first corporate board seats.

The Board Game addresses many issues, including, women at all stages of their careers to learn about building strategic networks, gaining visibility, and serving on nonprofit boards with business leaders, and men who want their spouses, daughters and granddaughters to know about making critical choices early in their careers in order to ultimately participate in critical decision-making at the highest levels of business.

A portion of the books proceeds go to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance for research to enable early-stage diagnosis.
