Women GCs on Boards: From Theory to Practice

Vancouver, May 21, 2019 - January 1, 0001

Presented in Partnership with Women General Counsel Canada and Women Get On Board.

We are pleased to invite you to our Women GCs on Boards program to explore the opportunities presented to women general counsel who seek to secure board positions.

The program will be led by Deborah Rosati, Founder & CEO of Women Get On Board. Deborah will combine roundtable discussions, facilitated breakouts and insights from experienced corporate directors Patty McLeod, Margie Parikh and Patricia Callon to help you articulate your unique skill/expertise and begin the process of creating your board profile and go-to-market strategy. Topics include developing your board-career plan, value proposition, résumé preparation and network mapping.

We hope you can join us for this interactive program where we will also share the results of our three-year study, Blakes Board Report: Opportunities for Women General Counsel, and a new supplementary study of in-house leaders and the board pipeline.

We look forward to seeing you.
