The What, Why and How to Joining a Corporate Board

February 27, 2018
SIM CGN: Career Growth & Networking Education - February 2018 Monthly Call


As companies seek to address the challenges and opportunities brought about by digital disruption, driving global growth, and entering new markets, their boardrooms are also in transition. Board directors are looking around the table and recognizing the need to bring new perspectives into the boardroom. The demand for technology, marketing, financial, geographic, and core industry expertise in the boardroom will continue to grow, as will the interest in bringing more people of diverse backgrounds (gender, ethnicity, age, etc.) to the table.

Julie will discuss what boards are looking for, how boards go about recruiting new directors, and how to effectively position yourself for board opportunities.


Mark Polansky, senior client partner at Korn Ferry, SIM NY Metro Executive Committee member, and June 2017 guest of SIM:CGN, will also be joining us and introducing this call.
