Women on Board


Women on Board

Because lasting change can only be created by empowering women and girls to realize their full potential, The Atlanta  Women’s Foundation engages and educates women as leaders through its Women on Board program.

Created in 2000, the program was designed to increase the number of women on nonprofit boards in Metro Atlanta by providing effective board governance training to Atlanta women and connecting participants to nonprofit organizations. Since its inception, the program has trained more than 2,500 women in board governance and leadership skills.
