for experienced non-executives

Our Directors' Circle membership

"Women on Boards is always there with timely and relevant support whenever you need it - a real benefit to treasure when competing for appointments in the competitive NED space."
Joanna Baldwin
portfolio NED and Board Committee Chair (including regulated environments)

Over the past decade, we have specialised our support to help women get on to boards .. but what about once you are an experienced board member?

Being a non-executive brings many challenges and finding the right roles to shape your portfolio is an on-going process.

Our Directors’ Circle membership offers confidential connections with other established NEDs to share experience and get expert insights. In addition, as a Women on Boards member, we will highlight board roles which require experienced candidates and match your interests.

If you’re an experienced NED with an established track record in complex boards this is for you.


Our Directors' Circle membership

What is involved?

Our Directors’ Circle is open to those with experience on large and complex boards only. You will join a community of your peers, to be welcomed into a supportive, confidential environment to share your experience and challenges as you move through your board career.

Our monthly events (mix of virtual and in-person) and closed WhatsApp community allow you to form new and strengthen existing connections directly.

Our ‘Ask a Director’ service provides the highest level of confidentiality to discuss sensitive issues with a trusted member who has experienced a similar situation. Alternatively, our team can collate responses to an anonymous query should a range of views be beneficial. Members have sought advice on acting as a SID to tackle a problematic Chair, stepping into a RemCo position and managing a whistle-blowing complaint.

Our Bespoke NED Search team will flag board roles seeking experienced non-executives to you as a Directors’ Circle member, and can connect directly to discuss concerns or how to best position yourself for those you are interested in. You will also enjoy all the other Full Member benefits of our network, including our pre-interview connections plus discounted access to our ‘Becoming an Effective Chair’ programme, Meet the Headhunter events and more.

Alternatively, get in touch with our Directors’ Circle lead, Julia Fuller, to discuss if this membership is suitable for you. Simply email to arrange a call.
