Have you ever considered or tried to get onto a Board but feel you don’t have the right skills or the opportunity?

The On Board with Me project wants to improve the situation and open up opportunities for people with disability to be appointed to Boards.

This project will work with organisations by looking at Board recruitment processes, and connect them to our candidates.  We will also work with training organisations that can help develop and connect candidates to these opportunities when they arise.

Our approach to this 12-month project will reach out to:

  • Candidates - people with disability aspire to being on a Board
  • Training Organisations – support training programs and identify new opportunities
  • Community Service Organisations - who are interested in improving Board Diversity and support new candidates

More details of the project and how to be involved can be obtained in the link below.  If you are interested in participating or would just like to learn more about the project, please contact Tracy Destree at [email protected]
