🕕 6pm - 8pm
📅 Monday 21st June 2021
If you have been considering a step into a Non Executive Director role yet you're not sure what's needed, where to look or where you could fit in then this is the event for you!
We’ll talk through things like:
Why getting on a board is good for your career (and for the world)
What you should be thinking about to find the right board role for you
Some tips on how to find board roles
At this event, Hannah Browne will join Helga Svendsen, host of the Take on Board podcast and experienced Board member, in a discussion about why women in tech should also be women in the boardroom.
Helga is passionate about gender equity and diversity on boards - it’s why she founded the Board KickStarter program (to support and encourage women into the boardroom) and the Board Accelerator program (to support them once they’re in the boardroom).
She’s a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and a Board member of the Royal Women’s Hospital and the Accident Compensation Conciliation Service.
She’s also a former Board member of Social Housing Victoria, YWCA Victoria and the former Chair of the Centre for Sustainability Leadership. She and Hannah have also worked together on the Greenpeace Australia Pacific Nominations Committee.
Hannah Browne is a technology leader and entrepreneur, now building her fifth company, Midnyte City. For 15 years she has worked on strategic transformation initiatives with start ups, scale ups and innovative enterprises, helping to build high-performance teams and progressive, digital first, human-centric organisations. Her core skills are in technology, revenue generation, organisational growth, building culture and influencing for change.
In 2020 Hannah was appointed to the Board of Greenpeace Australia Pacific as a Director, and Chairs the Nominations Committee. She is thrilled to contribute her technology expertise to tackling climate change through governance and strategy at one of the world's most recognisable environmental advocacy groups.
Helga and Hannah would also like to thank the wonderful people at MYOB for supporting this event and generously hosting the evening.
