What barrier? Getting more in women in the boardroom with Jan Easton


Today on the Take on Board podcast, Helga is speaking with Jan Easton about increasing women’s representation in the board room and her recent report “Achieving Scale: Breaking Through Barriers for Female Founders”


Jan is a founding member and Certified Chair of the Advisory Board Centre and she has served as Advisory Board Chair for several private organisations including a national hospitality franchise and marketing agency.


Jan has extensive senior management experience in the franchise and professional services industries. Originally from the US, at just 21 years old, Jan became the General Manager of a global software company disrupting a traditional industry well before disruption was celebrated.
