Getting Board-Ready Workshops from Women Get On Board 

This "Getting Board-Ready" workshop is developed to provide you with insights on How to Get Yourself on a Board.  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 marketplace. There is an over-supply of qualified corporate directors for a limited supply of available corporate board seats.

What will be covered:

  • Building your board profile
  • Preparing your board resume
  • Board planning
  • Preparing for board interviews

 

This event is discounted for Women Get On Board (WGOB) members. Please email connect@womengetonboard.ca for your member discount code.  To become a member, please email us at connect@womengetonboard.ca
