Journey to become a Technology NED.

A 101 Ways Online Panel Event.

An online panel event exclusively for Senior Technology Leaders who are considering their first Non-Executive Director (NED) position or seeking advice on how to navigate your way to the board room.

What is the event all about?

The session will explore how the boardroom is currently transforming in terms of diversity, digital and data expertise; and how there has never been a better time for diverse technology leaders to seek a Non-Executive Director (NED) role.

We are privileged to be joined by three inspirational women technology leaders, who (perhaps not by coincidence) share expertise in Digital & Data Strategy.

They’ll provide insights into their journeys to becoming a technology NED, what boards look for in the role, what the role involves, and the best steps to take to becoming one yourself.
