Event description

Description

Are you interested in being on a board? Are you passionate about your industry or cause and want the opportunity to have a vote in the board room? Would sitting on a corporate board be in your career plan? If so, we want you to come to dinner and learn how you or someone you know might qualify as a board candidate.

This event is a chance to find out if you are a candidate for a board position and learn more about the process of becoming board ready. We will talk about getting on boards and do a brief board seat audit to gauge your fit.

Critical decisions are made by the board, in the board room. While the majority (80% or more) of all board members are male, we've all heard in the news that we need more women on corporate boards. But how do we find those special women who are board ready? We get more women trained to be board ready - that's how. We need an army of women ready to fill the seats of open board positions that are coming available. Women who are ready to raise their hand and step up.

Join us and find out if a board seat is in your future!

WHY DO WE NEED MORE WOMEN ON BOARDS?

Research shows that companies with a higher participation of women in decision-making roles, generate higher returns on equity. Yet in the US, only 16.6% of corporate board seats are held by women, reflecting a much smaller number than is optimal for maximum ROI. Up until recently the board selection process has commonly been via “the good ole boy network”, subsequently leaving women out. But times are changing and more boards are now actively seeking diversity, creating opportunities for qualified women candidates. That is where ACE Board Training for Women comes in. Ms. Ashby has created a comprehensive training program for women who want to join boards which is designed for women only, preparing women to be board ready and teaching women how to win a board seat.
