Calling all Women Who Seek Board Positions.

Organizations with women in leadership positions perform better than those that don’t. They surpass others in social responsiveness, sustainability, and financial performance. Recent evidence also indicates that companies with female board members are more successful than those without women, a key concern for organizational competitiveness.

This program will feature faculty who are highly successful women board members and other experts in the field. You will join other high-performing, accomplished, and ambitious women who have already achieved much in their careers and who desire to take their talent, leadership, and executive skills to the next level by serving on boards. As a participant, you will also have the opportunity to develop a personalized action plan to seek and obtain a board directorship.

Act With Power

This highly interactive course will use case studies and experiential sessions to prepare you for directorship and start you on the path to being a sought-after candidate.

Go anywhere from here

You will expand your ability to evaluate board opportunities based on your own preferences and cultural fit, learn to communicate effectively in the language of boards, and gain critical knowledge and skills you will need to be effective.
