"I am delighted to be back on campus, albeit virtually" As the Founder & CEO of Women Get On Board, and a proud Brock University alum, I was honoured to join #BrockU Faculty of Social Sciences Dean Ingrid Makus in conversation last night. During Brock's #ChooseToChallenge event, we discussed finding your voice through purpose, presence, passion and power. In my more than 35 years of entrepreneurial, financial and governance experience, I have learned that it is not enough to have a seat on the board. You have to show up, serve and consistently elevate your board effectiveness.
As Founder & CEO of Women Get On Board, I recently participated in ISC Group's Executive Roundtable on the Gender Power Gap in Corporate Canada.

As Founder & CEO of Women Get On Board, I recently facilitated a Virtual Workshop presented by WGOB's Affiliate Partner WCM, on the topic Getting on a Board.

As Founder & CEO of Women Get On Board, I was recently a speaker and moderator for a panel discussion at WCT-GTA's virtual event 'Boost your Career with WCT: How to get on a Board.'

The panelists discussed how they landed their board seats, how board membership has enhanced their careers, what their responsibilities include and what to watch out for when looking for board positions. The learning didn't end when the virtual session wrapped up, as all attendees received a complimentary copy of my e-book "How to Get Yourself On a Board," now in its second edition: https://ebooks.womengetonboard.ca/products/how-to-get-yourself-on-a-board-e-book #Reach #Shine #Connect #CorpGov #WiseWednesday #BoardDiversity
