Becoming a Non-Exec Director Masterclass

October 6 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Have you ever considered becoming a NED?

In this masterclass, we’ll be covering the key fundamentals that you need to know as a first time Non Executive Director (NED), including:

* the core responsibilities of a NED

* the hard and soft skills boards are looking for in a NED

* how to find your first NED role.

 

Yemi is the founder of Building Inclusive Boards (BIB) a talent incubator and accelerator for minorities seeking board positions. Yemi is on the Advisory Board for BRiM (Black Representation In Marketing) and is on the UK Black and Brilliant Advocacy leadership.

Yemi Jackson is also the Founder and CEO of Engage Transform . A talent acquisition and development company with the mission of increasing the placements of women and the Global Majority (often referred to as Ethnic Minority in the West) talent in senior positions up-to Board level in Technology, Marketing and Finance. Yemi has over 20 years’ work experience, and was Senior Executive in Finance and IT before setting up Engage Transform to counter the critical need for a more engaged and diverse workplace that begins with sourcing the right candidates.

Using every rejection as a stepping stone, Yemi has continuously demonstrated how to overcome gender and race inequality with focus and determination. Her objective now is to assist organisations in finding high calibre diverse talent (the key to innovation and growth in the 4th industrial revolution) and placing minorities in the boardroom.

 

Moderated by Angie Vaux, Founder & CEO, Women in Tech forum
