Board Development Programs

The first cohort of the Getting Board Ready (GBR) program in Toronto is now available! 

In collaboration with LHH Knightsbridge, we are co-creating and co-delivering two innovative and timely board development programs, Getting Board Ready (GBR) and Elevating Board Effectiveness (EBE). These unique board development programs offer practical insights that move beyond education to accelerate the inclusion and effectiveness of female talent on Boards across Canada.
