OnBoard will provide its members with opportunities to connect with current
senior leaders and board members in Georgia, receive a greater understanding
about board governance, and grow a network of accomplished peers. Next OnBoard
advances OnBoard’s mission by identifying and involving motivated professionals
early in their path to senior leadership.
“We at OnBoard are excited
to invite the next generation of senior leaders to take part in our mission,”
says Jackie Parker, Board President
of OnBoard. “We believe that by discussing board governance with women professionals
early in their career and offering the opportunity for
them to calibrate their experiences with the career paths of senior leaders, we will see significant
change in the number of female leadership in the years to come.”
OnBoard will be hosting its first event on Tuesday, Mar. 25th at 6:30
p.m. at Aja Restaurant & Bar in Buckhead. The event will provide
opportunities for early-career professionals to network with professional women
and men from around Atlanta and provide a way to engage and connect with peers
and executives outside the corporate environment in a relaxed social setting.

OnBoard (www.onboardnow.org), formerly the Board of Directors Network (BDN), was founded in 1993 with the initial focus of increasing the number of women on corporate boards of both public and private companies. Today, OnBoard has grown into a prestigious organization as the leading authority on women in the boardroom and executive suites of Georgia public companies and publisher of the annual (and first-ever) study on women's progress in holding public board and C-suite positions. OnBoard advocates for women, inspires them to take leadership and connects them to opportunities. Follow us on Twitter @OnBoardGA and LinkedIn.
