Women in the Boardroom is an executive leadership event designed to assist in preparing women for board service - better qualifying and connecting attendees with the right resources. Panelists are executives with for-profit board experience and a desire to share their knowledge and information about the competencies needed for serving on a Board of Directors. Although the focus is on for-profit boards, much of the information acquired at these sessions can be applied to non-profit service.
Having originated in a single city in 2002, Women in the Boardroom now offers these events nationwide and also online through virtual panels. All current presidents, directors, and professionals in leadership roles - men and women - are encouraged to attend as an opportunity to learn from the panelists' unique experiences and network with other executives and board members.
The event begins with a two-hour panel presentation and Q&A. Topics of discussion include:
- Role of being a director
- Differences of a non-profit, private, and public board
- How boards look for new board members
- Being an effective board member
- Resources to help candidates with next steps
For information on the panel, visit the Women in the Boardroom website
Women in the Boardroom is held in the following cities: Atlanta, Denver, Twin Cities, Milwaukee, Des Moines, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington D.C. & New York
