Our mission is to close the gender power, wealth and funding gap by advancing for-profit board careers for women, supporting women-led startups and funds, and providing women opportunities to invest in other women.
This is why we are proud to make the Pay It Forward Promise: For every board career advanced through a paid company membership, we will gift a free annual Board Candidate Membership. Together we will advance 75k board careers for women by 2025!
How it works
The Fourth Floor platform provides access to a digital Board Seat Exchange, online private Membership Community, Back Room Investment Club and Job Board to hundreds of ecosystem companies, board ready women, entrepreneurs and investors.
The Platform is an efficient, transparent resource for companies to recruit and retain diverse talent while investing in the professional development of women executives.
The Back Room Investment Club and Job Board help women participate in the investment ecosystem and scale their careers, companies and funds.
Women experience entrenched systemic barriers that make it hard for them to gain the requisite experience to initiate or advance for-profit board careers. Now, because of companies like you making unfilled advisor, director and observer seats available for diverse candidates, we might not have to wait for a legislative solution to bring gender equity into the boardroom. We will change the demographics of corporate boards one Pay It Forward and Greater Impact Partner at a time!
