Sean O’Rourke, Board Member, Mr. T Carting

“The quality of the WIB members who applied for our board seat was superior. Every candidate met or exceeded the experience we were seeking. The process for submitting a board opening with WIB was easy – no hoops to jump through and great organization of the applicant responses. Don’t overlook WIB when searching for a new board director.”

Kristine Moore, Director at Achilles

“Women in the Boardroom is clearly on the forefront of supporting women in their professional development and simultaneously connecting nominating committee chairs with highly qualified female candidates. Especially for those making the transition from executive to board member, WIB provides guidance to expand your network, posts notifications about board opportunities and gives access to a suite of webinars featuring experienced professionals who offer insights on topics relevant to new and experienced board members. I was excited to see the WIB notification about the board opportunity at Ocean Power Technologies - and thrilled to have been selected for the role. Thanks to WIB for helping propel women into the boardroom!"

Patti Gentry, Associate Broker, JLL

"Women in the Boardroom allowed me to better understand the competition for a relatively small number of roles on corporate boards as compared to the potential candidates. It is a challenge to get through the boardroom door, NOT with WIB and Sheila Ronning. The WIB has made it possible for women to demonstrate proof from work experience, degrees and certifications to have access to these prized positions. WIB gives you the training, the tools, the self-confidence as well as the network to place yourself in the top tier of those being considered for board positions."

MaryAnn Miller, SVP & Chief Administrative Officer, Avnet

"I very much appreciated my connection to Women in the Boardroom. The resources and recorded webinars were excellent. The one-on-one calls were inspirational and provided advice and understanding about how I was hindering myself by not using my network appropriately."

Jane Bomba, President of Saddle Ridge Consulting

"Sheila Ronning and the team at Women in the Boardroom were instrumental in helping me put my board documents together. I received great support from this organization and am grateful."
