Being a successful executive or board member allows you to share the knowledge and experience you have gained in a fulfilling and important way through board service. Like all good things, finding the right seat takes work. More importantly, being prepared to be an influential board member, working among a small group of equally if not more successful people, has its own challenges. One of the most important ways to distinguish yourself for a board career and be an effective board member is to understand the positive governance of risk-taking, especially in the environment companies face today. In this session, we’ll examine how the partnership between Women in the Boardroom and the DCRO Risk Governance Institute gives new advantages to you in your pursuit of the ideal board seat.
