We are delighted to once again be partnering with Blakes on the 7th Annual Women GCs on Boards event, a cornerstone of our shared mission to help women general counsel secure opportunities on boards by honing their board value proposition and broadening their networks.

This year, the hybrid program focuses on providing practical advice, intelligence, and tools to enhance your interview skills, empowering you to show up with courage and confidence to lead and serve on boards. This workshop is ideal for those seeking their first not-for-profit board position and experienced professionals looking for paid corporate board seats. Deborah Rosati, Founder and CEO of Women Get On Board Inc., will kick off the program with a dynamic keynote presentation, followed by a panel discussion with experienced corporate directors and recruiters who will share their stories and insights as interviewers and interviewees. Facilitated in-person and virtual breakout groups will be held after the panel discussion, providing opportunities for conversations and networking.

Workshop Topics:

  • The board interview process
  • The role of the executive search firm in the interview process
  • Types of due diligence to conduct before the interview 
  • Preparing yourself for the board interview
  • Understanding your board value proposition
  • The value of practice

To facilitate local connections, the above Toronto-based, hybrid program will be held for Ontario and Quebec-based participants on November 10, and subsequent in-person events will follow in Calgary and Vancouver on November 16. If you are interested in attending, please contact Lauren Klostermann at Please note that space is limited.
