  2. Professional Development – Provide your employees with the opportunity to grow by facilitating their pathway to board and committee roles. Invest in their knowledge and leadership skills.

  3. Community – Enable your employees to give back and to support organisations through board roles, particularly in the not-for-profit sector.

  4. Access to influence – With more than 25,000 members WOB is one of the most powerful and supportive cross-sector networks of women in Australia and beyond.

  5. Build your talent pipeline – Provide an avenue for your talent to excel and develop their skills to become leaders of the future and access a network of directors and business leaders.

  6. Corporate social responsibility – Demonstrate your real commitment to diversity and promote women to lend their organisational-sponsored expertise to non-profit and government board roles.

  7. Build your brand – Develop a strong brand through positive brand association that advocates gender equity, diversity and inclusion. Take advantage of a variety of opportunities to profile your brand.

Grant Thornton partner, Holly Stiles, said partnering with WOB supports the organisations’ core objective of improved gender balance on Australian boards.

“Our female leaders benefit from the opportunity for their own personal development, through attendance at courses, networking with senior women from a broad range of industries and accessing opportunities for director positions,” she said.

Corporate membership - How it works

WOB is proud to work with organisations as part of their talent development and retention strategy - an investment in the professional development of your employees

It adds value to individuals and organisations by successfully planting ‘ambition seeds’ to enable younger and senior employees to believe that they can take on senior management and leadership positions as well as helping them to take on career-enhancing board roles. 

WOB has a range of membership packages to suit your organisational needs - from small remote teams to global multi-nationals. 

Upon commencement of the membership, each agreed employee becomes an individual member of WOB and can tap into all full member benefits. We then work with you on the agreed learning outcomes through your chosen membership option.

Throughout the duration of your Corporate Membership with WOB you will receive:

  • Workshops and events to inform and inspire employees, support their ambitions and grow their confidence and career resilience.

  • Access to a network of professional women via our accessible online community platform. 

  • Connections, encouragement and personal support for employees ready to step up in their career or into the boardroom. 

  • Access to the WOB Vacancy Board and discounted events and courses for self-guided learning.

  • Additional resources, programs & services that can be accessed as individuals require.
