The fact of the matter is, we need more diversity on boards. Without a variety of different people with different backgrounds, thoughts, and experiences, things will continually be done the same way. This isn’t how innovative processes and ideas come about!

If you’re wanting to get on a board, whether it’s for the intellectual challenge, the networking opportunities, to further your career, or give back to the community (on a not for profit board), here are 3 ways for you to reach your goal and get on a board!

1. Think about how your skills and talents can add value on a board

Just why should you be added to a board? Look at what you can offer your potential fellow board members, and what you can bring to the table – figuratively and literally!
When you can demonstrate what skills and talents you have that would be beneficial to a board, you’re more likely to be chosen!

2. Think about a not-for-profit board

Starting off on smaller boards means you’ll be able to have a larger say in the goings-on of a company, and therefore a bigger influence.
Not-for-profit boards are a great stepping stone towards getting on boards of more senior companies.

3. Start networking and ask people about board opportunities

Networking is vital in the business world; it’s the way to get ahead and build your career.
For help with networking, you can talk to us here at LHQ, utilise the fantastic resources that the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) provides, and get in touch with the Future Directors Institute.

By starting with these 3 helpful tips, you’ll be on your way to a successful board member career in no time! We’re here to help you become a great leader, and provide you with the support you need to get the position you want.
