The Leadership Foundry was created by Women in Technology (WIT) and prepares women to serve on corporate boards in the Washington, D.C. area. Structured as a nine-month program, it includes an intensive board training session in cooperation with the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), dinner and monthly training and networking events. Program participants should also expect to dedicate an average of three to four hours per month for board member executive development and promotion/search activities.
The Leadership Foundry is now accepting applications for the Class of 2018.
Applications are due by May 17.
The Leadership Foundry has released its 2016 Research Report on Women on Corporate Boards along with a fact sheet.
Volunteer for the Corporate Board Committee
Do you have a passion to see more women serve on corporate boards in our area? If so, please join The Corporate Board Committee which plans and runs The Leadership Foundry. There are many volunteer opportunities available from finite tasks to larger initiatives. We need support around partnerships, sponsorships, events, selection, media, publications, marketing, curriculum and the alumni group. Please note that serving on the committee will preclude you from applying for the program during that year.
