You’re invited to Women Get On Board's Members Only Event in Toronto on Wednesday June 10, 2020:


 “Getting Board Ready"


Understand the skills and steps required to become board ready and hear about different board experiences from an engaging panel discussion.


Proudly hosted by our National Strategic Partner, Bank of Montreal (BMO)


Getting yourself board-ready is a journey where you need to be realistic in your skills, experience and value you bring to a board. You also need to be mindful that it is a very competitive market-place. There is an over-supply of qualified corporate directors for a limited supply of available corporate board seats.

So, how do you start your journey to get board-ready so you can compete for a corporate board seat? The first step is to ask yourself these 10 questions to determine your readiness for leading and serving on a corporate board.


10 Board-Ready Questions
1. Do you have a minimum of 10 to 15 years of experience in a senior executive role in the public, private, crown or not‐for‐profit sectors?
2. Are you prepared to commit at least 200 to 300 hours per year to a corporate board role?
3. Do you have the support of your own Board of Directors and/or senior executives to serve on a board?
4. Do you have a formal governance certification or designation (C. Dir or ICD.D) from the Directors College or the Institute of Corporate Directors?
5. Have you ever served on a board, not‐for‐profit or for profit?
6. Are you a team player that understands the dynamics of boards is one of the most critical components of good governance?
7. Do you fully understand the role, responsibility and liability of a corporate director?
8. Do you understand the difference between a board of directors role versus a manage-ment role?
9. Do you have financial acumen—can you read and understand financial statements?
10. Do you have experience in critical areas in our changing world such as Risk Manage-ment, International Markets, M&A, Cyber Security, Digital Media, Big Data, etc.?
