Is Corporate Board Service in Your Future?
Thursday, October 22, 2020, 4:30 PM - 5:00 PM EST
Category: The Leadership Foundry

This year marks the 10th anniversary of The Leadership Foundry, Women in Technology's signature program to prepare executive women for positions on corporate boards, fulfilling our mission to advance women "from the classroom to the board room."

A decade has made a difference in the number and percentage of women serving on boards, but there is still a distinction between women at the executive level who are board-qualified and those who are board-ready.

Anyone interested in corporate board service expects a director role to come with a certain time commitment, but only The Leadership Foundry challenges you to begin that time commitment in preparing for and securing your first board seat. Our practice-based approach helps you come away with a deeper understanding of how and why a board functions because we put you “in the board room” through our unique training partnership with NACD. We help you understand your value proposition from a board’s perspective, and give you time to develop and hone the essential elements of your individual promotion plan.

What's New for 2021
The Leadership Foundry has extended the application deadline for the Class of 2021, and will offer an opportunity for candidates outside the D.C. Metro area to participate.

Join us for a brief webinar to learn how The Leadership Foundry has updated our curriculum and schedule to maintain delivery of our high-quality program in an all-virtual setting.
