The headlines are full of the fact that more companies are looking for women to serve on their boards. The common complaint about adding women to boards is that it is too hard to find them. TXWSW has teamed up with four women who are on the front lines helping women become board-ready and teaching them to market themselves. Their practical advice is great for women of all career stages, because depending on your age and experience, there are steps you want to be taking now to prepare for board service. They also cover such practical tips including getting both your resume and LinkedIn profile ready to begin your campaign. TXWSW Austin is hosting the first event this week, and you will not want to miss this. Details can be found on our website.
