Guiding Women on their Path to the Boardroom

  • We consult with with accomplished businesswomen on their path to obtain a corporate board seat appropriate for their skills and experience.
  • We reach out to boards when we have members that we think might be right for their board.
  • Women2Boards CEO Nancy Sheppard is member of the Leadership Team at The Athena Alliance, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, with a comprehensive board candidate program for women. We encourage you to visit their site and take the Are You Board Ready Self-Assessment if you are considering board service as your next career step.

Helping Corporate Boards Find Women Candidates

Our referral service significantly expands a board’s network in their search for board candidates with minimal cost.

  • Public and private company boards provide us with a profile of the skills and expertise needed for a director.
  • We search our Registry and networks for women candidates who match these needs and provide only matching profiles for consideration.
  • Boards pay a small referral fee only if one of our candidates is brought onto the board.

Board Jump Start Program

The program is a way for serious candidates to develop a board seat campaign in a structured, disciplined manner.

The Jump Start Program is open only to a limited number of candidates at any one time. This program, with personal consulting and self-directed preparation, has a 100 day plan from sign-up date in order to keep the candidate moving forward to her goal of obtaining that first or next board seat. As of June 1, 2017 we have a wait list for participation in the program.  Please let me know if you are interested in future availability.  You may want to consider The Athena Alliance program which is a year-long “white glove” program for C-Level women featuring.
