Financial Intelligence in the Boardroom

Women Get On Board Inc. (WGOB) hosts the WGOB Financial Intelligence in the Boardroom Program, a virtual program facilitated by Jennifer Nicholson, CPA, CA of Executive Finance. The WGOB Financial Intelligence in the Boardroom Program is designed to empower women with practical insights and tools to enhance their financial intelligence in the boardroom. This unique online program offers practical and hands-on support in a combination of micro-learning, virtually facilitated by financial experts.

Every board member has a role in financial oversight. Even if you do not have financial expertise, there is an expectation to maintain an adequate financial intelligence level, which means that you need to understand the fundamental concepts, conventions and principles underlying financial statements. Make valuable contributions at the boardroom table that drive the success of a business.

Online Format: A cohort-based program, registration includes three (3) modules virtually facilitated with coaching/interactive working sessions. Each module will be 2 hours with inter-session homework. Attendees will receive a certification of completion.
