How to be a Non-Executive Director ( NED ) – Diversity on boards

Have you ever thought about being a Non-Executive Director on a corporate or voluntary board? Are you familiar with what a Non-Executive Director does?

Britain’s public companies need to appoint women to 40 percent of their board positions over the next two years to meet government-backed targets to improve gender diversity at the top of UK plc.

Fiona Hathorn, Managing Director, Women on Boards UK will discuss the practical aspects of applying and getting on boards for women. Fiona is a former investment director for Old Mutual Asset Management and Hill Samuel Asset Management, running the Global Equities and Emerging Markets Desks respectively.  Alongside running Women on Boards UK Fiona advises the stockbroker Peel Hunt and is a Judge for the

Non-Executive Director Awards, sponsored by The Sunday Times.

Mairéad Ní Cheóinín, is a Corporate Fundraising Manager for Seafarer UK  and is on the Board for TG4. She will speak about serving as non-executive director to the board of TG4, Ireland’s successful independent television channel. Mairéad was one of the first nominees appointed by Ireland’s Houses of the Oireachtas committee (joint House of Lords & Commons set up) under a public recruitment initiative.  Mairéad is in her second term serving on the board and has a special responsibility as chair of a board sub-committee.
