Your boardroom success: why we need to know
Your success in getting appointed to a board or committee, whatever the size and indeed whatever the sector, is hugely important to Women on Boards. We are a purpose-led organisation and our aim is in our name - our mission is to support women to get onto boards. As such, the number of our members gaining board roles is our most valuable impact metric and a key factor in the sustainability of the organisation. This is why we love to celebrate your success!
The success of our members provides individuals who are just starting to look for information and support with inspiration and evidence that the Women on Boards journey really does work. Our Corporate Sponsors are also reassured that they are associated with an organisation that is making a significant difference to their employees, clients and society in general.
It does not matter how you heard about the role (this is not just about finding something on the Women on Boards Vacancy Board). It is about celebrating the success of Women on Boards members who are making progress with fulfilling their board and leadership ambitions.
What do we do with the information?
- List every success on our On Board page (link)
- Celebrate our members successes and the overall metrics in our communiciations - primarily on our website, email newsletters and in our social media
- Hold ourselves accountable internally regarding how effective Women on Boards is as an organisation
- Produce detailed Case Studies to help people visualise themselves on a similar journey. Find our latest
So if you (or someone you know) has found a board role, at whatever stage in your boardroom journey, please do let us know.
If you do not want your appointment made public, then of course you can notify us privately - simply send us an email - we will still love to celebrate your success!
"I am delighted to have joined Women on Boards and have just become the trustee of a national women's charity. I would not have known of this opportunity otherwise. Actually I was on maternity leave when I saw the vacancy and at first thought that meant I was out of action. However having read the inspiring case studies about the women who just went for it, I decided that I would apply and see what happened - and it worked"
