[Community Circle] Joining a Board

Online • Dubai • October 11, 2020

Looking to serve on a Board? Join us for an interactive workshop on your personal elevator pitch on what you're able to offer to a board, and what you're looking to gain from the experience.

Sunday, October 11, 2020 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM +04

October Agenda

Our October circle will be focused on your personal elevator pitch.

Be prepared to formulate and communicate your personal 'why?'. Why do you want to join the board, what can you offer the board and what are you looking to gain from your experience? This will be an interactive session, so come prepared with some note and be ready with cameras on ready to discuss with the group. Looking forward to having you join us!

About this Community Circle

What does it take to join a Board of Directors? In our world of gender equality, organizations large and small are looking for qualified female candidates to include in vital board roles. If you have aspirations of using your talents to support businesses from the board position, then join this circle and explore what it takes to gain a board position in the UAE. We will discuss possible avenues, possible industry sectors and considerations for success. This group is ideal for those aspiring to join a board and existing board members looking round out skill sets and help support others on the journey.

Who: GE Exec and Ellevate Co-President, Kelly Nobles & CEO & Founder of The Hametner Group, Audrey Hametner, will be your hosts.

What is a Community Circle?

Community Circles are a new initiative from Ellevate Dubai launched in April. These virtual sessions will be themed around varied topics and facilitated by members of our leadership team along with members from within the community. The one hour Zoom sessions will allow for open discussion among attendees to learn from each other and lean on each other.
