At EWOB, we believe that diverse boards can become a key driver for strategic change today.

Whether in the corporate sector or in other spheres such as non-profit organisations or academia, boards of directors have an important role to play as decision-makers. By leading and shaping the long-term vision of an organisation, they have the opportunity to actively contribute to improving diversity, inclusion and sustainability. This is why we have created the Board Readiness Program, a practical training for all the leaders of tomorrow.

In the current dynamically changing times diversity of thought, gender and experience on European boards is strongly needed. I strongly encourage women to obtain their seat at the table and impact the strategic corporate decision making. One way to start is to sign up the Board Readiness Programme created by European Women on Boards.
