Serving on a corporate or non-profit board is an excellent opportunity for you to gain skills and visibility and broaden your network.

Plus, representation matters: not only to the performance of the companies and organizations who have more women on their boards, but to women who see other women on boards and can then imagine it for themselves (“If you can see it, you can be it”).

I’ve served on several boards over the years and the relationships I’ve made have been such an important part of building Speaking Your Brand.

My guest is Shireen Motara, who consults with companies and agencies like the United Nations on gender equality and women’s rights, including board diversity.

This is a deep conversation about:

  • How Shireen became interested in gender equality at a young age
  • Why companies benefit from having more women on their boards
  • Why there are so few women on boards
  • What it looks like to serve on a board
  • How to let organizations know you’re interested
  • The skills you gain by serving on a board
