Advocates

Take Action and Advocate

Advocates are high-level corporate influencers who champion the development of women for board positions.

The $400 annual Advocate fee supports OnBoard’s work of enabling women for corporate board service.  Advocates earn the following benefits:

  • Notifications of confidential board opportunities
  • Invitations to two complimentary Advocates-only events per year, each featuring a high-profile speaker and exclusive networking opportunities 
  • Option to gift one complimentary Next OnBoard membership to an early- or mid-career woman ($100 value; included with Advocate fee)
  • Discounted admission to three OnBoard signature events throughout the year; free admission to virtual events
  • Opportunity to mentor or be mentored
  • Listing in the Annual Study (published in October) and OnBoard’s website (updated quarterly)

The Advocates List

Launched in 2005 with a dozen charter members, the Advocates List now consists of more than 300 corporate and civic leaders who proudly support gender parity in corporate leadership.
