Our educational mission

Stanford Women on Boards seeks to help all of our members learn what it takes to become a director and to be effective in contributing to a high performing board. We call this Leading Edge Stewardship.

Leading Edge Stewardship Video Series: Getting There and Doing it Well

The path to a boardroom position is multifaceted and extends beyond just securing a seat at the table. Recognizing this, we have developed a comprehensive 10-part video series designed to empower leaders throughout their board journey. Each 20-minute module, led by two of our experienced Mavens, is curated to enhance the skills and understanding needed at various stages of board involvement, from aspiring members to seasoned directors. These engaging sessions provide practical insights and actionable advice to boost effectiveness and leadership in the boardroom.
