Free Webinar: Women On Boards

A Personal Development Strategy

Elizabeth Schwan-Rosenfeld

Want to take advantage of the talent development opportunities inherent in board service? Ever thought about joining a board but not sure where to start? 

Join Smith Executive Education and Elizabeth Schwan-Rosenwald for a webinar on the unique leadership development benefits available in board service. Elizabeth will help us reframe our ideas on the value of being on a board and provide recommendations for taking advantage of the “old boys club” mentality and turning it on its’ head. The session caters to women who are interested in, and/or currently serving on a nonprofit or corporate board and those who support them.

You will learn:

  • How to create a personal talent growth strategy
  • How to address professional gaps through board service
  • How to create a network for supporting career advancement
