Gain insight into what it takes to secure a place on a board, find your footing and make your mark with Yvonne Gillett, CFO of the Raiders Group, as she recounts her journey and first six months as the first female of the board. While female representation on boards has been slowly climbing over the last few years to 18% of the ASX200, 47% still have no women at all. On Board to Board is exclusive to motivated women looking to share in the insights of industry leaders who have held board positions. This relaxed event also offers the opportunity to socialise with like-minded professionals and find the motivation to take your board aspirations to the next level. Yvonne Gillett has been the CFO of the Canberra Raiders Group for almost 20 years and became the first female on the board six months ago. With discussion around the gender of directors more prominent than ever, Yvonne is delighted to be able to share her experiences and help make it more accessible for women to secure directorships.
