Contents Introduction -- Board lifecycle: a typical journey -- Is a board position for you? -- Finding the right board for you -- Getting the gig -- I'm a board member! Now what? -- Hello, madame chair! -- Shelf life: when to move on -- Complete the circle -- How you can help.
Summary "Sadly, Australia's not the enlightened country it could be and should be when it comes to leadership diversity - there's a dearth of women on the boards of our corporate, government and not-for-profit boards (and even fewer chairs). Get on a Board is designed to inspire and empower more women to take the leap into the board arena. There are many insights for men as well, as well as for boards wanting to make their structures more welcoming to women. Get on a Board takes you on a journey through the board lifecycle, from first consideration of such a role, through finding the right board, getting the gig, honing your performance and, finally, moving on."--Publisher's website.
