WOBChat is an interactive fortnightly online session designed to fill the current void. We’ll provide a facilitated, friendly environment for members to meet, network, share and learn - online.


Join Rita Capodici, Shing Ka and Ruth Medd for a discussion about the Cultural Diversity in leadership project

Come prepared to contribute:

  1. Has your cultural heritage impacted your board career. If so how has it helped or hindered?
  2. If you serve on a board, tell us about how you got your first role?
  3. Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give to aspiring board members from a non-Anglo Celtic background?
The first  of our 4 questions -
  1. Tell us about your career and the boards that you serve on?  - we will ask the participants  to put info into the chat function.

WOBChat is provided FREE OF CHARGE to Full, Corporate, Global Members and Champions.
