OnBoard Seeking New President

OnBoard Inc. is seeking to engage a new President to steward the organization as the leading authority for women on Georgia public company boards and a catalyst to increase female directors on all for-profit company boards. The tenets of Advocate, Inspire and Connect form the framework of OnBoard. The organization is based in Atlanta, Georgia and the new President would ideally start in June 2020.

Why is OnBoard doing a search?

The current Executive Director is stepping back from this role, which she has filled for a number of years.  Concurrent with that, the board of directors of OnBoard has decided to create a President role that replaces the ED, but with some strategic changes to help the organization continue to increase the number of women in executive leadership and on corporate boards.

What is the new role?

The role of President has three key aspects: (1) building and sustaining external relationships; (2) oversight of the organization; and (3) managing internal operations.  The role demands strategic thinking as well as operational expertise.
