"Outstanding in Their Field", a new book by Elizabeth Ghaffari, CEO of Technology Place Inc., takes a look at how women get to the Boardroom. Elizabeth examined the women who have been appointed to corporate boards in California, interviewing several and giving us the lessons she learned from these outstanding executives. Whether their background was corporate, government or in the non-profit world, their hard work, courage, and ability to face challenges make them stand out in the crowd. As I read the book, I was extemely impressed with their achievements. Elizabeth has given us a roadmap to the Boardroom. Having highlighted corporate board appointments of women for several years now, I believe the road to the Boardroom should not be the one less travelled, but should be the one we pave with our experience, expertise and education.
