How to Get a Paid Board Seat

With Michele Ashby, principal and founder of ACE, LLC

 

Note time and date

Date: Friday, October 7, 2022
Time:  11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. CST
Location:  Zoom Call, FREE Virtual “IT” Community event

Moderator: Laurie Swanson, InspiHER Tech Founder and #1 Career Sherpa for Women in Tech

Ready to get paid for your advice and experience? Women hold about 30% of board of director roles for S&P 500 public companies (and only 20% of ALL boards for public companies which means thousands of smaller companies need your leadership!).

These numbers are set to rise as research proves profitability and innovation go up when women have a seat at the table. 

Yet, the average board member for a public company in the U.S. is a white, 63-year-old male. What gives? 

Time to change the game. Plus, preparing for the corporate boardroom is an amazing exercise! By the end of this Unstoppable, you’re going to see your personal brand more clearly and know how to better prepare for your next promotion as Michele walks us through the many moving parts of landing a board seat. 

You’ll learn:

  • The #1 secret to getting on a board (hint: you already have this!) 
  • Key steps to getting on a paid board and how to navigate boardroom culture
  • What board positions pay the most
  • How to easily ramp up your knowledge of financial terms, risks and responsibilities, and exchange rules
  • How to build confidence and competence to get to the boardroom

This is LIVE so BRING ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT GETTING ON A BOARD, get instant feedback and make your way to the most influential room in the world – the boardroom!

BONUS: Ready to join a board? All attendees receive an exclusive link to Michele’s Board Assessment Quiz for FREE. Thank you, Michele!!
