Disability, diversity and digital directors up for discussion at WOBChat


How can your board be more inclusive of people with disabilities? What does it mean to build a culture of ‘belonging’ in an organisation? How do you become a digital director? Why join an advisory board?


These are all topics up for discussion with expert speakers at our member-only virtual WOBChat events.

WOBChat is an interactive facilitated online session for members to meet, network, share and learn - online. And we have a great line-up of sessions coming up.

On 5 September Claire Beattie, Executive Director of Schools Infrastructure, proud Yorta Yorta Woman and member of WOB’s Cultural Diversity Committee will interview leadership development expert Dr Isabelle Phillips on building belonging cultures.

This will be followed by Being a Digital Director with experience NED Cheryl Hayman on 5 October. Members will get to hear about Cheryl’s challenges and learnings from her board journey and how she promotes herself to increase her board portfolio.

On 19 October our Faces of WOB for Disability and Inclusion, Roberta Wright and Nadia Moffatt OAM will share their challenges and discuss how boards can be more inclusive of people with disabilities.

Why join an advisory board? In this panel discussion on 2 November with Mary Sue Rogers and Louise Broekman, we will explain what an advisory board is, compare it to a board of directors, explain how they can assist businesses, and explain how you can find an advisory position.  

WOBChat is run through Zoom, which can be accessed through your PC/ Mac or phone.
