Getting yourself board-ready is a journey that needs to start long before you can join your first corporate board.

Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada), in conjunction with Women Get on Board and the provincial CPA bodies, is hosting a series of local, live roundtables for mid-career women in the CPA profession to start their journey to getting board ready.

Each roundtable event will be led by directors who currently serve on corporate boards, helping participants gain practical insights and information on the sought-after skills that boards look for, while being mindful of the increased focus on gender diversity in the boardroom.

The roundtable event will allow for additional networking time, where participants can connect with the speakers one-on-one and interact with peers.

These events are now sold out.
