We are breaking down the barriers to entry to the boardroom and building the pipeline of board-ready women. Women on Boards operates from the principle that as talent and ambition are equally distributed between men and women, organisations in all sectors need to work towards gender balance at board and leadership level, in order to reach their full potential.
We work on both the supply side and the demand side, with board candidates and with those recruiting non-executive directors and trustees:
1: Women on Boards is building the pool of female board members and role models by providing the information, encouragement and connections to ensure more women are appointed to boards across all sectors.
2: Women on Boards is increasing the transparency of the board recruitment process through our NED Vacancy Board (free service to any organisation seeking a board member) and our work with head-hunters and the government to “turn off the spotlight and turn on the floodlights” when recruiting board members.
