Find Board Ready Candidates

Coming soon: A database of board-ready women

OnBoard’s first priority is connecting our network of qualified women with board opportunities. OnBoard’s online database of vetted, ultra-prepared women will go live later in 2024. 

In the meantime, we invite companies seeking board candidates to contact Lisa Robinson at to learn about our complimentary candidate referral service. OnBoard can help you refine your criteria, thoughtfully select candidates based on your needs, and fill open board seats by leveraging our national candidate base.

If you are a prospective candidate looking for information on our board readiness programs, please visit our web pages for Accelerator (C-Suite level), Ignite (VP and Director level), or Membership (various levels).


OnBoard partners with a strong network of organizations to connect board searches with our qualified members. Our key partners are listed below.
