Exposure. To reach the boardroom, all three are needed.” That was the central theme from yesterday’s program for The National Conversation on Board Diversity, an event of 2020 Women on Boards.

David Motley and Christy Uffelman: Diversity lacking in Pittsburgh boardrooms

Diversity and inclusion matter at all levels of our economy. In corporate boardrooms, diversity of thought, experience and perspective among decision makers constructively challenges the status quo and creates better strategies for success in today’s complex, global economy. It’s clear that board diversity drives innovation, growth and long-term shareholder value as well. All of that goes right to the bottom …

Congratulations to 2017 PTC EDGE Cohort!

No one is keeping a tally. So why am I?

By Christy Uffelman   I’ve been battling my inner Martyr lately and losing. She shows up whenever I get stuck in the tiresome cycle of Overdo. Resent. Repeat. Whenever I say yes instead of no. Myrtle is a capital-P People-Pleaser, and no thanks to her, I’ve spent many a day taking on more. More work. More chores. More obligations. And …

Fewer Pittsburgh company boards are a mens-only club

JOYCE GANNON Pittsburgh Post-Gazette jgannon@post-gazette.com About a dozen public companies in the Pittsburgh area had no women directors eight years ago when Sarah Stewart moved to the region to open an office for an executive recruiting firm.

By Christy Uffelman I spent some time last Sunday afternoon at a funeral home. It certainly wasn’t what I planned to do that day. I had errands to do, things to get done.

Endings First, Beginnings Second.

By Christy Uffelman   January 1, 2017 We talk a lot about new beginnings this time of year- how great they are, how exciting, how shiny. But what we often fail to remember is that in order to experience them, something else must first end. This past summer I went tree walking with my Girl Scout troop. I’m afraid of …

Learning to #OwnIt

By Christy Uffelman “No one likes a girl who brags.” So says the voice in my head. I don’t know about you, but I learned a long time ago that when we talk about how fabulous we are at something, well, that makes others feel ‘less than’. So we hold back, we censor, we deflect. And I wonder, at what …
