Testimonials

“I was amazed at the experience and credentials of my fellow participants. As this was an Introductory course, I wasn't sure what to expect, but the sophistication and the knowledge of the participants soon became evident. I learned a lot just by listening to their stories and experiences. This course helped me get past my pre-conceived notions that Board positions are primarily based on "who you know," not "what you know" --although I'm sure that's still a factor on many Boards! Courses like the Get on Board Program which emphasize Board education are a great step towards getting Boards comprised of qualified diverse individuals outside the old boys club.”

"Diversity is imperative, particularly in the boardroom. It helps to spark innovation, create new solutions to old challenges and generate powerful ideas and profound change."
