Generously hosted by:


Join us for an interactive fireside chat with Sharon Bowen, Chair of the New York Stock Exchange, in conversation with Wendy Woods, Vice Chair, Social Impact, Climate, and Sustainability, Boston Consulting Group discussing this year's focus of Women Taking Charge: The Economic Playbook For the Future.  

Join us and celebrate the 20th anniversary of our pioneering Census of Women Directors and Executive Officers in Massachusetts’ Public Companies. This year’s report showcases the stories of women in leadership positions and the ways in which these 100 companies have been diversifying their boards and executive suites. 

Sponsors of The Boston Club’s Salute affirm their commitment to advancing women to senior leadership positions, and to supporting our work to ensure that more women are appointed to corporate boards. This event is eagerly anticipated by those corporations that recognize and reward the unique ways that women contribute to furthering and advancing the communities they serve within New England. For information on sponsorship and benefits, please email [email protected] and view our sponsorship brochure.
