Board Bound Program

 

In the US women make 85 percent of all consumer decisions

Board Bound is a program of the Women’s Leadership Foundation, the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce’s Foundation. Corporate Board Bound and Community Board Bound are unique programs because they provide women with an individualized plan consisting of the components each woman needs most to prepare and ideally position her for a board seat on a corporate or non-profit board of directors.
