Women Get On Board events aim to empower women on their journey to corporate boards and to help prepare executives to become board-ready. Our events also provide good networking opportunities to connect with our WGOB community of engaged women and men that are committed to advancing gender diversity in the boardroom.

Events are complimentary for members (a membership benefit) and complimentary for guests of our National Strategic Partners who host our events. Use the member discount codes that are provided to our members and our partners.

Non-members are welcome to join us at events for a nominal fee.

We welcome men to attend and participate at our events.
