DirectWomen also hosts Alumnae Quarterly Calls to reinforce what alumnae learned at the Board Institute and to help them to stay “on track” with their board searches. These 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.
