Boardrooms for the future – fighting fit or just fanciful?

How diverse is your board?

Sponsored by Rathbones

The shockwaves of the pandemic will be felt for many years to come.

Diverse boards are key to steering organisations through choppy waters – but how fit’s yours?

Join IoD Scotland’s Aberdeen & Grampian branch and Changing the Chemistry for a learning session that encourages you to think about your organisation’s approach to the boards diversity. 

Hear from Changing the Chemistry founding member Tanya Castell MBE as she shares her tips on how you can bolster your board. Following the speaker presentation there will be discussion and Q&A, and of course lots of opportunity for networking!

12:30 - 14:00 – speaker presentation, Tanya Castell MBE, Changing the Chemistry
