Get on board - together: Women on Boards’ peer support groups
Information, encouragement and support are key ingredients to successful board careers. Informal connections with people who can offer this is one of things our members have always valued about our Women on Boards network. However, these informal connections have become much harder to make in a socially distanced environment. We are therefore creating peer support groups to bring members together to help each other succeed in the boardroom.
Each group will comprise of a maximum of six Women on Boards members at a similar stage in their boardroom journey. Maybe you are just considering joining your first board; are honing your applications to target the more competitive roles; or you may have a full portfolio but would value a group of peers, at a similar level, to discuss boardroom interactions.
With some initial facilitation from our team, you will connect at least monthly over a 5 month period to share your experiences in building your NED career and/or overcoming your current NED challenges for those of you that are currently on a board.
These groups are intended to offer the encouragement, peer support and friendly ‘outside’ perspective which research shows is key to success.
Each group will share information and experiences of NED applications and/or boardroom situations in order to learn from others’ experiences, offer and receive advice or simply get what can be, at times, much needed moral support.
Closing date for registration of this first cohort is 23rd September so act now!
- After registering, you will complete a short survey to enable us to match you with members in a similar stage of their board career.
- A briefing pack, tailored to your board career. These articles, reports and resources may form the basis for group discussions or simply be for your personal development.
