Who We Are

Founded in 2015, Women Get On Board (WGOB) is dedicated to developing the next generation of women corporate directors. Through exceptional events, programs, workshops and resources, WGOB connects, promotes and empowers women to serve on corporate boards with confidence and courage.

In 2023, WGOB was selected as a CWE Gala award winner in the Gender Equality in the Workplace category in recognition of our work to support women in senior leadership roles and get more women on corporate boards.

With close to 1,000 members across Canada, we are proud to be establishing a new generation of women in the boardroom, one woman at a time. We believe in the power of three—one woman in the boardroom is a token, two is a presence and three is a voice. We amplify the voices of women leaders, board members and professionals across Canada by supporting them throughout each step of their board journeys.
