Boutique mentoring for  ASX board roles

Our new boutique mentoring program to improve your understanding of the role and function of an ASX director and to enable you to better position yourself for listed company roles. WOBSX has come about in response to the growing numbers of WOB women who are ready and sometimes being considered for ASX (and equivalent) roles, but are falling short along the way.  

The aspirational goal of this new program is that more than 25% of participants secure listed company directorships within two years of completing the program.  A big fat hairy goal we know – but one that the quality of the women in the WOB network more than makes possible to achieve.

Program details

  • The program is by selection - we want to make sure you are ready to take advantage of the offer.
  • Each program intake will have up to 12 participants who will work over a 10 month period with an ASX Chair and/or Non Executive Director in a facilitated group mentoring environment.
  • There are a minimum of eight (8) facilitated peer-to-peer group mentoring sessions that will run for up to three hours each.
  • Each participant will also receive four (4) x one (1) hour sessions with the chair during the program.
  • The program will incur a fee of $6,950 (ex gst).
