Jane Edison Stevenson, Vice Chair, Board & CEO Services, and Katie Bell, Senior Client Partner and Global Account Leader, Korn Ferry, with Marna P. Borgstrom, CEO, Yale New Haven Health.

How can more women make it to the top in healthcare organizations? What specific backgrounds, experiences, and personal traits have had the greatest impact to date on women’s paths to CEO? How can today’s health system board and executive leaders develop action-oriented initiatives to create a sustainable pipeline of female CEOs? With a goal of seeing 100 female CEOs in the Fortune 500 by 2025, the Rockefeller Foundation provided a grant to Korn Ferry to design and execute research geared to answering such questions. To crack the code of women’s success — and to help organizations better identify and leverage their highest-potential women leaders — Korn Ferry conducted a series of in-depth interviews with 57 female CEOs, delving into pivotal experiences in their personal history and career progression, and key personality traits and drivers that had an impact on their paths to the top. Join Jane and Katie as they share the results of this research, explore specific traits such as risk-taking, resilience, and managing ambiguity that are critical to women’s success, and discuss specific lessons learned and investments required to ensure that more women CEOs are identified and supported to serve today’s healthcare organizations. Yale New Haven Health CEO Marna Borgstrom, who has walked this path herself, provides introductory remarks to set the stage for practical applications in the world of healthcare.
