“Mercer has worked with Women on Boards for the last seven years, providing support through the use of our facilities and the provision of Board Room lunches and guest speakers. Through our support we have welcomed many professionals at different stages of their progression to directorships. We believe in the value of our corporate sponsorship and the benefits it provides to Women on Boards and their members. Beyond the support we provide, we also receive a number of benefits, including the ability to expose our colleagues to Women on Boards lunches and learning events and promote Mercer programs that are aligned to Women on Boards’ programs.
We believe in Women on Boards’ mission and vision and support the work they do enabling women to leverage their professional skills and experience into non-executive-director and other board level roles.” Anthony Schiavo, Partner, State Manager - Qld, Mercer
