WGOB Board Ready Series

Getting yourself board ready is a journey. That's why we created the WGOB Board Ready series, facilitated by Dr. Deborah Rosati, Founder & CEO of Women Get On Board and a WGOB Corporate Director in Residence. The series is designed to empower women with practical insights and tools to empower them with confidence and courage to lead and serve on boards.

This series is a complimentary offering exclusive to WGOB members. Join us for one session or attend them all; the choice is up to you! Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Deborah Rosati's e-book How to Get Yourself On a Board following the session.

Session 3: Network Your Way onto a Board

Join us for How to Network Your Way onto a Board, the third session in our WGOB Board Ready series. Landing a board seat is often about fit and style. The more connections you have to the board, the more confident the members will be that your leadership style fits into their boardroom culture. In this virtual session, you'll learn how to use your network to find connections to a board and get the introductions you need to land a board position.

Join us for our final WGOB Board Ready session:

    Founder & CEO of Women Get On Board Inc.


    Deborah Rosati, an award-winning corporate director and entrepreneur, has been defined in three interconnected ways throughout her 35-year career – as a corporate governance champion, catalyst for change and community builder.

    As the founder and CEO of Women Get On Board Inc. (WGOB), an 850- member social-purpose company, Deborah is building a community of the next generation of women corporate directors, advancing equity, diversity & inclusion (EDI), collaboration, courage, and confidence in the boardroom.

    Deborah is a leading and serving corporate director and has chaired many public company audit committees and nominating & corporate governance committees. In addition, Deborah has led and served on numerous special committees with various mandates (including going public, going private, M&A, restructuring and special investigations).

    Deborah’s passion for good governance and board diversity is rooted in her board journey when she was often the only woman in the boardroom. These first-hand experiences cemented Deborah’s conviction that having more women on boards makes better business sense.

    Deborah’s commitment to sustainable change and empowerment, deep governance and financial expertise and dynamic personality have made her a sought-after thought leader and speaker —her thought leadership on corporate governance, sustainability, EDI and social impact is profiled on her website: https://deborahrosati.ca/
