TheBoardroom Africa promotes the exceptional female talent of its diverse members to boards across the continent. As part of our work to accelerate and sustain your success, we host bi-annual board networking events to match board-ready female executives from across Africa with leading African and multinational companies in search of new board members. These events facilitate relationships between top female talent and businesses seeking to diversify their boards and improve their overall business performance. The board networking event is anchored in our mission to ensure that we are consistent in showcasing talent.

Getting to The Boardroom

Getting to The Boardroom

Our inaugural conference is dubbed Getting to the Boardroom. The first edition will lay the foundation for building ties and community within TBRA’s network of ~1000 executive women. Beyond the network, the conference targets aspiring female executives and board leaders looking to position themselves for future board roles and improve their ability of existing board members to perform in their new sessions. It will take place over 2 days and will also offer companies an opportunity to showcase their interest in hiring senior female talent and offer consultancies an opportunity to connect with female talent.
