How women can shape their director career.

With the registration of women on ASX 200 boards sitting at 25.3% at the end of 2016, there is still work to be done to promote a greater gender balance in our boardrooms. This event aims to assist women interested in developing board careers. We have gathered an experienced panel of female board members to share their tips and provide practical advice on:

  • Understanding the current context surrounding board appointments
  • Identifying requisite and desirable technical and leadership skills and experience
  • Career structuring in order to obtain board appointments

Join us at this special event to hear how a diverse group of senior women have shaped their board careers.
