For younger board members

Generational diversity is increasingly in demand as organisations struggle to keep abreast of technological and wider social developments. We want to make sure you are as prepared as much as possible so that you have the best chance of success. .

You do not need conventional work experience to join every board. Being an influential person, showing that you understand, have contributed to, or can contribute to, relevant issues or communities can be enough. This section is aimed at helping people who want to join boards earlier in their lives, and is designed to support your thinking about what you might need to do or to demonstrate.
