Interesting interview with Tracey Travis, CFO of The Estée Lauder Cos. and a Director at Accenture, looking at her career and giving advice to younger executives looking to make it into the Boardroom.
Boards have historically been very interested in CEOs and CFOs, so being a corporate CFO makes you an attractive candidate for a board. The good thing about boards today is, given the challenges that a lot of companies are seeing, they’re actually looking for additional skill sets, global and international experience being one, digital/social media experience being another, technology, cybersecurity, etc. So, there’s an opportunity. And that’s where I think from a diverse perspective we have a broader opportunity to play.
