Join the Women on Boards team in Edinburgh on the evening of the 20th of March to find out more about board roles in a variety of sectors.
Come along to broaden your understanding of the range of opportunities out there, understand how your skills and experience are transferable and to meet other board members, both current and future.
The purpose of this event is to introduce you to the different types of board opportunity you could be targeting and to hear from a panel of board directors with a wealth of experience, who will share their individual journeys to the boardroom. As well as picking up insights and ideas, this will be a great opportunity to broaden your networks.

"The session on Wednesday was a true inspiration to me. It was just what I needed at this time. The speakers you chose shared great insights on what NED roles they'd done, why they'd chosen them and how they got them. I also liked the Q&A session where the panel shared their hints on how to demonstrate what you will bring to the organization." March 2016
Wine and light nibbles will be provided.
