We will explore why having women on non profit and charity boards is essential.

  • What are the special skills that women bring to the table?
  • What are the challenges women face in a often male dominated environment?

You are invited to a discussion on the best practices and obtain strategic & ethical advice from our panel who have over 40 years of Board experience.

A lunch will be offered at 11:30 a.m., the conference will begin at 12:00 p.m.
