Women on Boards Presentation: Women-Focused

Business women speaking in a group

This presentation will provide motivating information on the value and importance of women on Boards, strategies to navigate the challenges involved in accessing a Board position and then succeeding in the role, as well as ideas to create your own personal leadership plan to take on a Board role.

I think it’s very exciting that Canadian Women & Sport has created these workshops. This is not something that existed when I first began to serve on boards, and I believe it would have been very helpful on my journey. Having a resource such as this provides a roadmap for all of us to improve how we recruit, support and retain female leaders from diverse backgrounds
