Welcome to


The Lodis Forum is a rare and transparent collective of like-minded women. All members are Chairs, Vice-Chairs, or Lead Directors. 

Currently, there are no federal rulings that mandate firms have women on their boards. The assumption is that Women Board Chairs or Vice-Chairs are rare in firms, and this presents us, as a forum, with a unique opportunity of influence.

Women in Board Leadership Survey

Since private company boards are not required to report board diversity metrics, The Lodis Forum completed a survey to gather data on board diversity in privately held companies. The survey data is from 249 companies representing 1695 directors. 

About The Lodis Forum

We host two quarterly forums where the agenda is geared towards curated topics that we, as a forum, assign and deem important. We welcome both opportunities and obstacles and promise a transparent and trusted environment for all to speak openly. We believe our collective voices will be uniquely suited to elevate a public conversation about Women on Company boards and Women in Board Leadership Roles.
