Women on Boards Franchise
Bench International’s Women on Boards franchise is a unique and highly-personalized mentoring program involving one-on-one engagement with women leaders who possess the skills and experience required to be successful in adding significant value to Board compositions. Utilizing our wisdom gained over 40+ years working exclusively in the life sciences sector, Bench International’s focus extends beyond gaining insight from women leaders who already hold Board positions to identify and engage those women leaders who, although equally capable and desirous of serving in a Board capacity, are “less obvious” and thus overlooked. Equally important is Bench International’s expertise in probing, understanding and identifying cultural fit in order to ensure a successful result for both our women leaders and the clients we represent. Gender diversity is an important issue that we are tackling to gain equal representation in workplaces across the U.S. and globally.
To further our reach and impact, Bench International is actively involved with various organizations focused on Women on Boards (and female leadership issues, generally), both in a sponsorship capacity as well as through a unique “Give Back” program Bench International has created where Bench International will partner with one or more Women on Boards non-profit organizations and commit to donate a percentage of fees earned by Bench International through placing women leaders on Boards to the designated non-profit organization(s).
Bench International is proud to say that recognition and success with our Women on Boards program is now generating requests from clients to assist them in adding to their gender diversity when considering additional Board members.
