The Programme Director

Dr Ruth Sacks – “I have seen how participants’ aspirations become much higher as their confidence in their abilities increases. And, each group develops a strong network which is expanded and enhanced through the private LinkedIn group available only to participants and contributors.”


Sue Baldwin – “Doing Women for the Board helped me get my non-executive directorship by giving me the confidence and understanding to ask the questions. It also helped with how to sell myself.”

Jennifer Farrelly – “It was fantastic. Very challenging.”

Clare Duffy – “To make sure you’re fully prepared, I’d recommend doing a programme like Women for the Board.”
