KPMG and FWSF host On Board Bootcamp

Boot Camp Group

Women have made strides achieving seats on corporate boards in recent years and corporations are starting to understand the value that diverse boards can bring to the overall company and to the bottom line. In 2014, the number of women on FORTUNE 1000 boards rose slightly to 17.7%, but there is still room to grow…and that creates an opportunity for qualified executive women. 

Boot CampTo help accelerate this growth, KPMG and FWSF hosted a day-long “On Board Bootcamp” on June 24th at the KPMG offices in San Francisco. The program was designed to help women who aspire to work on corporate, advisory or non-profit boards, chart a path and enhance skills to become an attractive candidate. The session, conducted in association with PartnerCorp Corporation, which is a company that creates and manages Advisory Boards, was an intensive seminar that provided an insider’s guide on how to be selected for a board and introduced attendees to experienced corporate directors and search firm executives who shared their “lessons learned” along the way.

Boot CampThe On Board Bootcamp also covered how to:

  • Fine-tune your resume and emphasize your strengths
  • Develop the right networks, position yourself, and become visible as a candidate
  • Prepare yourself for becoming an effective corporate, advisory, or nonprofit director
