Get On Board!

Get On Board! Networking

Connecting Women and Boards

Get On Board! is an invitation-only, speed-interviewing style event designed to connect board-ready women to companies seeking board candidates.

Event Format

Networking time with an intimate group of board-ready candidates and corporate influencers

10-15 minute, informal one-on-one interviews

How It Works

Get On Board! invites board selection influencers to connect with qualified women candidates via networking and informal, one-on-one interviews. The invitation list is limited to 20 women whom OnBoard has vetted as ready for board service, and a corresponding number of CEOs, general counsels, and corporate directors representing for-profit companies. 

Prior to the event, OnBoard provides interviewers with detailed profiles of participating candidates, allowing interviewers to request particular candidates with whom they wish to speak. Interviewees are encouraged to use this opportunity to ask the board selection influencers for their advice on board candidacy. The atmosphere at Get On Board! is professional and congenial, creating an environment conducive for getting to know board candidates in a relaxed setting. 

Finding candidates is cited as a major barrier companies face in increasing representation of women on their boards. Get On Board! addresses that issue by connecting qualified women with opportunities and helping them raise their visibility for board and leadership positions.
