Welcome to Boardvisory Women on Boards

The stats speak for themselves; just over 20% of board members in South Africa are women.

But there are many passionate female leaders working hard to change that number and many resources available to help. 

Boardvisory is committed to empowering women on boards, whether seasoned board directors or just starting their boardroom journey.

This webpage is dedicated to all things related to Women on Boards and we hope you find insight and inspiration here.


Below are articles, research papers, videos of Ted talks, and other resources you may find interesting if you are a woman leader or director, or on a path towards leadership and board directorship.
