There will be monthly group sessions in a peer advisory board structure. The number of participants in each group is limited to maximize individual attention and focus. You will discover how to use your networks and gain insight into choosing the right board opportunities for you. You will understand how to contribute meaningfully as a director and how to incorporate a corporate directorship into your career plan
What you Need to Know
This training will help to raise your profile and create a strategy for you to approach the selection process of getting on a corporate board. We explore the critical issues facing corporate boards now and in the future, including how women on boards play a critical role and what to expect being the first, second or third female to join any particular board.
The most common way people get on boards is because of who they know. A key part of getting on a board is to establish relationships with key executives, directors, recruiters and community leaders as well as honing your communications skills to voice your desire to be on a board. The number of board seats available at any given time is limited, so it is key to be prepared and willing to raise your hand when one comes along.
