Divershefy's Mission is to increase diversity in Boardrooms and C-Suites by recommending highly qualified and board-ready women in order to create effective and diverse Corporate Boards, Advisory Boards, and Leadership Teams.


Divershefy's Vision is to create more innovative, sustainable, collaborative and profitable businesses by enabling companies to reach gender balanced and inclusive Boardrooms and C-Suites. 

About Divershefy

Divershefy brings women into Boardrooms and C-Suites globally. The number of women in Top Leadership is still low, around 20 % globally and it is hardly improving year on year. Studies have shown that having more women in Top Leadership such a Boardrooms and C-Suites improves the bottom line. We at Divershefy have decided to do our part to move the needle and support women to reach top leadership roles. 


How we do it

We work with Companies to address unconscious bias from the top and build a support system for women leaders. Our global virtual events advocate for diversity in the C-Suite and Boardroom. We train and connect qualified women leaders with companies wishing to diversify their leadership.
We also provide consulting and advisory services to company leaders who want to incorporate a gender-balanced business culture and work with Boards to create an inclusive Board Culture.
Those who want to actively participate in creating a more diverse business culture are joining Divershefy Club, a high level international network of women who serve on Boards and in C-Suites, Investors, Corporate Leaders and Board Members willing to open doors to Top-level positions.
