Do you have NFP and government boards on your horizon?

The Not-For-Profit and Government sectors are a rich source of board and committee roles. There are literally thousands of positions available in these rewarding and interesting sectors. Best of all they are suited to both the first time and the more experienced non-executive-director, and all levels in between.

Women on Boards co-founder and director, Claire Braund knows a lot about both of these sectors, knowledge which can be hard to come by and which she will willingly and openly shares. Join Claire and two experienced guest panellists and you will be rewarded with a much greater awareness and understanding of boards and committees in the NFP and government sectors.

Specifically you will come away with:
  • Information on how the sectors operate and the opportunities and pitfalls
  • The capacity to assess where your skills will best fit - and what you have to offer
  • A plan for which sectors and roles to target
  • How to apply for these roles
  • Next steps in your pathway to directorship.

Workshop inclusions:

Two live virtual sessions with comprehensive slides, case studies and reading to access in your own time: 
  • Session 1:  Thursday 2 November 2023 (12noon - 2:00 pm AEST) with Claire Braund
  • Session 2:  Thursday 9 November - (12noon - 1:00 pm AEST) with Claire Braund & experienced panel
