WGOB Mentorship Program

Since our founding in 2015, WGOB has seen the power of mentorship affect meaningful, real-world change when it comes to advancing gender diversity in the boardroom. That’s why we launched our WGOB Mentorship Program in 2021 to promote women leaders and accelerate their corporate board journeys.

The WGOB Mentorship Program will match aspiring women corporate directors (Mentees) with accomplished leading and serving women corporate directors (Mentors) to elevate their board effectiveness and advance their board journey to a corporate board seat. The program will provide Guided Mentoring and incorporates key learnings from Deborah Rosati’s 2021 published e-book How to Get Yourself On a Board and Peer-to-Peer Networking for the Mentees.
