The Board of Directors is responsible for a large part of
the growth and success of CEW. The
caliber and stature of our all-women board is unrivaled—anywhere. When asked
how we keep such a large Board engaged, I say it’s because of networking before
the meeting, topline reports, key learnings and of course, ending on time. Two
reports they were particularly interested in during Thursday’s meeting:
• 24 Seven’s Beauty 2016 Job Market Report, based
on a survey that was fielded among CEW’s 6,000+ U.S. members (men and women) from
1,700 large and small companies.
The Report covers current compensation
ranges, talent mobility and employee engagement.
• Wendy Liebmann, CEO, WSL Strategic Retail,
reported on research her firm conducted, which was really informative and
directional. She revealed the top needs and wants of beauty executives as it
relates to professional development.
Here are some photos from our meeting, held on the 44th
floor of Hearst Tower.
