The George Washington University School of Business (GWSB), in partnership with the International Women's Forum (IWF), is proud to launch On the Board, the first of its kind, globally focused, comprehensive training and placement program for the world's top female executives.
On the Board is an elite fellowship program designed to prepare and place women leaders on corporate boards. Made possible through a generous gift from Linda Rabbitt, founder and CEO of Rand Construction Corporation, GW Trustee and IWF member, On the Board promises to reshape the business landscape by building a pipeline of women prepared to serve on the boards of leading international companies.
Representing a powerful cohort of high-potential 21st-century leadership, On the Board formally announced this history-making program with an event and forum featuring a wide range of speakers and panelists from Fortune 500 corporate boards, global stock exchanges, and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The event introduced to the world On the Board's inaugural class of 15 fellows, a select group of women executives chosen on the basis of their leadership achievements and potential to serve as effective corporate directors.
