{"ops":[{"insert":"Members of The Forum of Executive Women joined dozens of women from around Pennsylvania in the State Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg on March 27 to show support for passage of Senate Resolution 255, which is sponsored by Senator Judith L. Schwank (D-Berks) and currently under consideration. The resolution urges privately held and publicly traded companies and nonprofit institutions doing business in Pennsylvania to have a minimum of 30 percent women directors by December 31, 2020 and to measure their progress toward equal representation of men and women in leadership positions on an annual basis. The Executive Women’s Council of Pittsburgh (EWC) was instrumental in bringing Senate Resolution 255 to the forefront. The resolution is modeled after PA House Resolution 273, which was introduced by Rep. Kate Harper (R-Montgomery) with support of The Forum of Executive Women, the region’s premier women’s organization that is actively working to increase the number of women in leadership roles, expand their impact and influence, and position them to drive positive change in the Greater Philadelphia region.
