In association with 2020 Women on Boards, Austin will be the pilot site for InTouch2020; a program for helping qualified professionals obtain a corporate board seat through making the right connections and taking effective action.
What sets this program apart is a focus on creating meaningful connections that can lead to a seat on the right board. Participants will interact each month with current corporate directors from the local community, as well as industry professionals that have board-influence. Additional networking and visibility will come through invited attendance at Austin NACD chapter events. Program graduates will be recognized at the Austin 2020 Women on Boards event Nov 21, 2019.
This program is open to qualified professionals with board of directors aspirations.
Education- Curriculum and materials to guide you through preparing for, and landing, your first corporate board seat. Electronic copies of all notes and handouts will be provided.
