Who should attend this program

The Women on Boards of Directors program is aimed at professional women from both the private and the public sectors who are in leadership positions and are either currently on, or aspire to be on, a board of directors.


The Women on Boards of Directors program explores issues around the following key areas:

  • Essentials on building an effective and diverse board of directors 
  • Composition of boards of directors, governance of organizations, challenges and opportunities
  • Facts, figures and key competencies required to be an effective board member
  • A business paradigm for navigating through corporate crisis and improving decision making


Participants will engage in varied learning experiences through interactive lectures, workshops, case studies, individual and group exercises, and guest speakers.  Case studies will be presented to illustrate real business situations that participants need to analyze, discuss in groups, and make decisions to address the key issues presented in each case.

Each participant will also perform an assessment of their innovative decision making competencies.
