On the Board is a groundbreaking new initiative of The International Women’s Forum (IWF) and The George Washington University’s School of Business (GWSB). The On the Board program will prepare women leaders to become candidates for and directors on corporate boards. Through its powerful partnership, IWF and GW aim to achieve a bold goal: to ensure 100% placement of all On the Board’s Fellows on corporate boards.
On the Board Fellows will receive advanced training in board-level leadership knowledge, including corporate strategy, crisis management, ethical and responsible decision-making, corporate finance and value creation, risk assessment, leadership communications and regulatory compliance. The program will feature the tenured faculty of GWSB as well as leading practitioners and experts. The power of the IWF network of leading practitioners and sitting corporate directors will bring important voices and experiences to the program that will be unmatched. Mentoring from experienced female corporate directors is a core component of the program.
