Have you considered joining a community board role yet?
Are you interested in board roles?
One of the single most transformational actions you can take for your career is to join a board as a non-executive. You are never too young (or too old)! We can help you find the right board which will value your skills – and help you build your networks and strategic experience.
Our WB Directors network specialises in enabling professionals to take on non-executive positions at all career stages. What we do works – 8 members gain a new board role each week.
All employees of our Corporate Partners can join as Full Members of our wider Boards network, regardless of gender for, FREE.
Everyone is welcome to join our enabling and diverse* network, which will connect you with professionals from all sectors and career stages. It will expose you to the benefits of a non-executive career and help you understand how to begin or boost yours.
*When we say diverse, we mean industry and diverse in seniority levels. We welcome men and women into our network and have supported many men joining boards over the years, but our networks roots are ‘women on boards’ so if you are attending any of our networking events outside your corporate environment you will find that our network is female-dominated. However, rest assured, we understand inclusion, and there is nothing gender-specific about our board’s network (in terms of content knowledge). There is nothing gender-specific about the board room. What we do works and we will support anyone, male or female, interested in getting on and wanting to tap into our unique support and enabling boards offering.
If you have any further queries or issues in joining WB Directors via an existing or a new Corporate Partnership, or wish to establish a new one, do check our FAQs or contact: email@example.com / 020 3925 4080.
Professional Development Support
We won’t tell you how to run your career or change your personal style. Instead, we share information and advice – based on leading global research and the lived experience of our diverse leaders – that you can adopt to meet your ambitions.
Membership to the WB Directors’ networks will enable you to own and actively manage your career via our internal in-house events, as contracted by your organisation and or via you accessing us via our external network support, events and resources.
Corporate In-House Programmes
If you cannot access an in-house workshop, talk or programme run by WB Directors, consider one of our open training sessions, run for all our network members. For example our ‘Get on Board’ workshop shares all you need to know to start develop a non-executive career to complement your day job.
We also have a Getting to the C-Suite Leadership Programme if you are interested and cannot get onto a suitable skill-based internal corporate sponsored programme as well as mentoring and other support options; see below.
If you want to find out if you can access any of our in-house support from your employer, contact your internal WB Directors lead or contact via email contact@WBdirectors.co.uk, and we will point you to the right person to talk to internally.
Individual Support for You
Should you need it, we can offer personal 1-on-1 support, which has been designed to help you get the edge at critical points in your career.
