Invite friends to this event
In March 2017, we surveyed 500+ senior-level executive women about their personal board journeys so we could better understand where and how we can help. We heard their stories, studied their insights and analyzed the data to uncover the major challenges & opportunities for women on their path to the corporate boardroom. During this webinar, we will address the top 10, along with how we can help you face these challenges & master these opportunities. A few that we will cover include:
- Why male networks still dominate board searches & what tactics you can employ to build your own network
- Why the case for gender diversity in the boardroom still needs to be made & how to address this
- How imposter syndrome deters women & how to combat it
- Where the opportunities will continue to increase & how to capitalize
- Why strategic networking works & how to do it
