Board ready programme
Supporting talented females in preparing for Board level roles
The business case for gender diversity is well established, and as members of the 30% Club a significant number of employers in Ireland are actively committed to achieving greater gender representation at Board and Senior Executive level.
An ongoing area of focus is the development of an appropriate talent pipeline to ensure that such gender representation targets can be met – this is driven by actions in terms of awareness raising, skills training, target setting and appropriate talent and succession planning within organisations and across industry.
In support of these actions, Deloitte, in partnership with the 30% Club Ireland have designed a bespoke introductory ‘Board Ready Programme’ (the ‘Programme’) aimed at talented women in senior executive positions; starting to prepare them for a Board level role, and equipping them for future positions through the delivery of an interesting and interactive series of workshops. The course is equally appropriate for women who have recently been appointed to a Board.
