Be An Advocate

Take Action and Advocate

As we celebrate our 27th year, we invite you to join a select group of women and men who have accepted the invitation to be a part of the Advocates List and are passionate about the mission of OnBoard.

The Advocates List

The Advocates List are individuals who have accepted the invitation to financially support OnBoard at a leadership level.  Advocates support OnBoard’s mission to increase the number of women in executive leadership and on corporate boards.

The campaign for 2019-2020 Advocates List covers October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2020.  The Advocates List is published and distributed at the November awards dinner.  The 2019-2020 Advocates Campaign begins now.  To renew or become a new Advocate click here.
