Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Many women don’t put themselves forward for senior roles; how can volunteer boards encourage more women to join the community? This session shares approaches used by two volunteers, one male, one female, who attracted and retained female volunteers in their sub-committees and onto the chapter board of directors. We will explore the benefits of a supportive volunteer culture, demonstrating the performance outcomes, positive impact on relationships and creating a healthy environment for teamwork.
