To train the next wave of female leaders for service on nonprofit and government boards and commissions.
With the goal of ensuring diverse and gender-balanced leadership at the helm of our region’s companies and organizations, Engage provides board-readiness training to women, subsequently helping address the current gender gap on corporate, nonprofit, and government boards and commissions across the San Diego region.
In partnership with All Our Talent: Women on Boards & Commissions, launched last year through the San Diego Regional Chamber Foundation, Engage participants will undergo comprehensive training from our region’s top experts and leaders.
Engage consists of eight half-day sessions beginning in May. Each of the sessions will include 3 hours of expert instruction. Curriculum topics include:
- How to Navigate Culture & Male Dominance
- Board Roles & Responsibilities
- Orientation & Education
- Government Board Service
- Strategy & Planning
- Executive Evaluation & Compensation
