Deborah is a passionate entrepreneur who has spent more than 35 years growing businesses from the ground up. Early on, Deborah realized that entrepreneurship is one of the best ways to make a positive impact on the world. That’s why she spent her career founding and building companies in both a leadership and governance capacity.
In 2015, Deborah founded Women Get On Board Inc. (WGOB) with a very simple goal: get more women on boards. She centred the social purpose company on three pillars: to connect, promote and empower women to corporate boards. Deborah built the business with strategic thinking and relentless resourcefulness, growing its membership, resources, partnerships and board services. Since WGOB’s beginnings, Deborah has grown the company to more than 700 members and showcased more than 70% of those members on their board appointments.
