As more women reach senior roles within organizations, they are increasingly interested in working on boards as independent directors. Research shows having a critical mass of women on a board leads to higher quality decision making, reduced operational risk, faster innovation, and better financial results on many key metrics. This program is designed to help you launch your search for a seat on a board, understand the skills required, and develop those most needed in today’s boards, which have evolved significantly over the last decade.

Program Benefits

Becoming a board director helps women leaders in many ways, a few of which are:

  • Acquire and contribute invaluable strategic perspective to prepare for success in a C-suite role.
  • Form important professional “mentor” relationships across industries and sectors.
  • Demonstrate subject matter expertise that can expedite professional advancement.
