Let's get more women on Boards
6 April 2018 By LV Marketing
Do you have Board experience and a willingness to share skills, knowledge and expertise with other women? Can you act as a positive role model for others?
Do you have time for a coffee or a drink once a month?
At LV we believe that Mentors can play a really significant role in the learning development of our program participants.
Getting more Women on Boards has been identified as critical aspect of gender equality and ensuring we have more women in senior leadership positions.
Supporting this work by actively mentoring someone else to be a successful and valued Board member is a way you can help lift others up as we strive to ‘smash the glass ceiling’.
Ideally you can provide guidance and constructive feedback that will assist other women on their leadership journey. Overall good mentoring requires empowering the mentee to develop their own strengths, beliefs, and personal attributes.
Why do we need Board mentors? What is the gap?
· Less than 1 in 10 Exec positions are held by women in ASX500 companies
· Today, only 7 of the top 200 companies have women CEO’s
· 56.5% of ASX 500 companies have NO women on their Boards at all
· The gender pay gap has remained stuck at 17% for 30 years
