A critical barrier for women seeking board appointments in the U.S. is a lack of connections and access to sitting board members who have influence over the nomination and selection of directors. As an extension of the 30% Club Future Female Directors program, the 30% Club is partnering with Catalyst to move board-ready female candidates into the Catalyst Women on Board program. This program, with an impressive track record of over 50% of alumnae appointed to at least one corporate board, creates these key connections that help women build those all-important board networks. Qualified women board candidates are paired with seasoned corporate directors for two years. 30% Club chairmen and CEO members are showing support for this initiative by volunteering as mentors in the Women on Board program.
