Who We Are

Founded in 2015, Women Get On Board Inc. (WGOB) is a social-purpose company committed to elevating the next generation of women corporate directors. Our mission is to connect, promote and empower women to serve on corporate boards with confidence and courage.

WGOB was selected as a 2023 CWE Gala award winner in the Gender Equality in the Workplace category in recognition of the company’s work to elevate women in senior leadership roles and get more women on corporate boards.

With more than 900 members across Canada, we are proud to be building the next 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.
