Who benefits from this course?

Mid-career executives preparing to seek their first private or public board position in a few years, building expertise in finance, operations, technology, human resources, global or digital marketing, or compliance. Attorneys, military officers, business school deans/professors or executives with other value-add career experience for boards will also benefit from participation.

How does Path to the Boardroom differ from Get on Board! Workshops?

Creating your Path pays off! Women who begin building their visibility and networks duringtheir early and mid-year careers have a better chance of securing a corporate board seat later. Many senior-level women tell us, “Wow if I had only known these techniques 20 years ago, I’d be on a board by now!”
