Who We Are

Women on Boards (WOB) is an independent, action-oriented social enterprise with
a proud history of supporting women to leverage their professional skills and experience
into non-executive-director and other board level roles.

We offer programs and services across Australia and the UK and have a growing global footprint through connections across 85 countries.

Active & Inclusive |  Successful & Innovative | Local & Global

Women on Boards has been working for more than 10 years to address gender inequity in the boardroom and across leadership roles.

We are a recognised leader in a growing ecosystem of organisations and networks promoting and supporting women; dedicated to breaking down barriers to entry into leadership and onto boards. We have a track-record of success and are known for our strategic and practical events and programs. 

Our aim is to have 40 per cent of these roles occupied by women by 2025. Targets are essential and quotas will sometimes be necessary to achieve our goal.

As strong advocates for women, WOB works across organisations and sectors and with Government on a meaningful and strategic policy and cultural change agenda for gender equity.
