Supporting Executives with Directions, Tools, and Approaches
to Increase Representation of Women on Health Care and Related Industry
Boards

Gender disparity on boards of directors is well recognized and
documented, whether in the for-profit, non-profit, or government
sectors. In the United States, fewer than 30% of corporate board
directors are women. Nearly 50% of venture capital firms focused on
health care have no women on their boards of  their portfolio companies.
Yet studies show that companies with women on their boards make
decisions that better protect company value and performance.

Accomplished and qualified women want positions on boards of
directors and want to advance to leadership roles on them. Many are
unclear how to secure these positions of responsibility. Women on Boards: Getting on and Adding Value
works to increase the representation of women in governance positions
in health care by teaching strategies and competencies to help women to become a first-rate board member, to prepare you for the inevitable
challenges, and to provide direction, tools, and approaches to reach
your full potential.

This is a Must-attend Program for Women Seeking Board Positions

The program faculty features highly successful women board members
and other experts in board governance and practice. You will meet
high-performing, accomplished, and ambitious women who have achieved
much in their careers and who are ready to take their talent,
leadership, and executive skills to the next level by serving on boards
in health care and related industries. As a participant, you will
develop your own personalized action plan to seek and obtain a board
directorship, and to advance from there.

This interactive course uses case studies and experiential sessions
to prepare you for directorship and to start you on the path to become a
sought-after candidate. You will learn to evaluate board opportunities
that meet your preferences and fit, learn to communicate effectively in
the language of boards, and gain knowledge and skills you will need to
be effective.
