Overview

Body
Women account for half the workforce, more than half of all advanced degrees, and two-thirds of consumer spending. Increasing women's representation on corporate boards is good for business and good for the economy.
 
Join us to hear from a panel of women involved with both nonprofit and corporate boards. Gain insights on how to build your “board” resume and ways to get on a shortlist for board membership. We will share ways to get involved on local nonprofit boards, what to look for and how to evaluate the opportunities that come your way.
