Women on Boards

Women on Boards is a purpose-led business network to increase diversity in executive and non-executive leadership.

Women on Boards offer information, encouragement and connections to start and shape your board career.

Founded in 2012, Women on Boards are a purpose-led business network who’s aim is to increase diversity in executive and non-executive leadership, particularly at board and C-Suite level. Still pursuing their initial focus of supporting women into non-executive board roles, they have evolved over time to work across four key areas:

  • Women on Boards network providing an open, inclusive network spanning all sectors, professions and career stages.
  • Non-Executive vacancy services to connect high-quality candidates with recruiting boards.
  • Corporate partnerships to support organisations in creating lasting cultural and behavioural change.
  • Voice for Inclusion programme to advocate for the proven operational benefits of diverse boards through talks, media and other campaigns.
