Next OnBoard

Turning Top Talent into Tomorrow’s Leaders

Next OnBoard is a place for high-achieving, early- and mid-career women to expand their professional networks, learn about board governance, and chart their paths toward senior leadership. 

Next OnBoard’s key differentiator from other women’s networking groups is its focus on developing a career path to board service – the highest level of corporate leadership. Through regular events, OnBoard’s online community, and the opportunity to be mentored, Next OnBoard members receive targeted education and can calibrate their career paths with the experiences of existing board members. The peer connections with other ambitious women provide ongoing professional growth and shared learning.
