WGOB Mentorship Program

Since our founding in 2015, WGOB has seen the power of mentorship affect meaningful, real-world change when it comes to advancing gender diversity in the boardroom. That’s why we are launching our inaugural WGOB Mentorship Program with the goal to advance women leaders and accelerate their corporate board journeys.

The inaugural WGOB Mentorship Program will match aspiring women corporate directors (mentees) with accomplished leading and serving corporate directors (mentors) to elevate their board effectiveness and advance their unique board journey to a corporate board seat. The program will incorporate Guided Mentoring based on Deborah Rosati’s 2020 published e-book called How to Get Yourself On a Board, as well as Peer-to-Peer Networking for mentees.


The Program is aimed at women with more than 10 years of senior management or executive experience who have aspirations to lead and serve on a corporate board.
