The path to Board membership may seem mysterious and uncertain, yet the need has never been greater for women to have a seat (and a voice) at the table. How do you best position yourself to join a Board? For women already serving on Boards, how do you have maximum influence?  

Womble Bond Dickinson Chair & CEO, Betty Temple, and other women leaders in Houston shared about their own Board journey and experiences, as well as insights on making a lasting impact. The evening began with a brief networking reception, followed by an interactive panel discussion with Q&A. During the program, guests enjoyed a summer-inspired dinner with wine/mocktail selections.
