Jill Griffin on Fox Business Mornings with Maria

Watch my appearance on Fox News Mornings with Maria and listen to the Wharton Business Radio podcast Women@Work with Laura Zarrow.

“By supporting the advancement of corporate board leadership and good governance, Jill has been a pioneer on this front and instrumental in helping connect boards to candidates while educating aspiring directors on the path to directorship. Her efforts with advancing women and diversity candidates in the boardroom has been tremendous. I highly recommend reading her books on the subject and getting caught up in her infectious connectivity.”
