Women on Board
Corporate boards perform better when they include the best people who come from a range of perspectives and backgrounds. The boardroom is where strategic decisions are made, governance applied and risk overseen. It is therefore imperative that boards are made up of competent high calibre individuals who together offer a mix of skills, experiences and backgrounds. Board appointments must always be made on merit, with the best qualified person getting the job. But, given the long record of women achieving the highest qualifications and leadership positions in many walks of life, there continues to be poor representation of women on boards, relative to their male counterparts.
This session will aim to encourage more women to become board members and identify the necessary skills, experience attributes to become a successful board member.
Facilitator: Nuala Griffiths, Development Officer, Strategic Investment Board and Board Member of WOMEN’STEC
