Women on Boards

The AWF’s overarching goal is to promote the advancement of women in the field of finance. One way of supporting such advancement is through the encouragement of female participation on boards which, in light of a large gender disparity at top organizational levels, provides women with the ability to lead and shape many of BC’s businesses and organizations.

Our objective is to support the women in finance in their journey to the boardroom table by supplying them with the resources and information required to make informed decisions regarding joining boards and board readiness.

There is a host of information available online with respect to board training, board opportunities, governance, board gender statistics and best practices. The links below represent a selection of board-related resources with a focus on British Columbia.
