You've told us that getting on a corporate board of directors is one of your goals, but what does it take to get there? Hear insider secrets on getting on a corporate board, building your network and what to do when you land your first board seat! This event is the kick-off to a series of smaller workshops focused on more in-depth information about becoming board ready.

We'll discuss:

  • Stories from those who have made it, how they were asked to join and the due diligence you need to conduct before joining.
  • Advice on how to secure your first board seat.

Sarah Ladd Eames, senior member of the CEO/Board Services, Health Services, and global Life Sciences Practices at Russell Reynolds Associates.
Holly Gregory, Partner and co-head of Sidley Austin LLP Global Corporate Governance and Executive Compensation practice.
