Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire is CEO of 50/50 Women on Boards™, the global education and advocacy campaign committed to accelerating gender balance and diversity on corporate boards. She is also CEO of Berkhemer Clayton Retained Executive Search in Los Angeles. She is the author of two books, "The Board Game: How Smart Women Become Corporate Directors” and “Winning the Board Game: How Women Directors Make the Difference.” Both books offer real-world guidelines and profiles of women corporate directors for helping women seek board positions as their ultimate career goal.

Formerly, she was the statewide president of the National Association of Women Business Owners of CA (NAWBO-CA), founding SoCal chair of WomenCorporateDirectors, member of National Assn of Corporate Directors (NACD), and International Women’s Forum.
