The Board Institute plays an important role in how best to position oneself for board service. In addition, DirectWomen has multiple initiatives designed to support Board Institute Alumnae in their board search. For more information about any of the initiatives below, please contact Kelsey Vuillemot ([email protected]) or call DirectWomen at (833) 239-6636.
Board Search Announcements
Corporate leaders and partnering non-profits periodically contact DirectWomen for help finding eligible director candidates. When we receive these requests, we alert the alumnae network and encourage those interested to submit updated resumes.
DirectWomen hosts Quarterly Calls to reinforce what alumnae learned at the Board Institute and to help them to stay “on track” with their board searches. The calls provide an opportunity for alumnae to learn from those who have successfully secured boards seats, share challenges and successes, discuss topics of interest to the group, and provide support for one another. Email Kelsey Vuillemot ([email protected]) for information about upcoming quarterly calls.
DirectWomen organizes its alumnae into six regional groups. Regional co-chairs organize informal get-togethers and small regional events for alumnae. The groups facilitate networking and generate board opportunities on a regional level.
