The Board Network & The Leadership Network

The Board Network brings together senior women who are board directors from a diverse range of commercial businesses and social enterprises. Membership of The Board Network is comprised of like-minded board directors with a shared interest in board effectiveness and dynamic board leadership, and members are able to exchange and discuss ideas and experiences with their peers. Each year, The Board Network hosts high-profile events to discuss a variety of topical subjects across its branches in the UK, Europe, US and Asia- Pacific, making The Board Network a global forum with a focus upon the development of boards at an international level.

Heidrick & Struggles recognizes the importance of creating and supporting a sustainable talent pipeline for senior women leaders in business. Alongside The Board Network, we have also established The Leadership Network that is aimed at senior executive women who aspire to Board and other leadership roles. The Leadership Network provides an environment for assessment, professional development and peer to peer exchange on business and Board topics. The network is also embedded into the global CEO & Board Practice. 

Through mentoring, coaching, thought leadership, assessment, Board evaluation, Board workshops, networking and much more, we believe that this forum can enhance the aspirations and visibility of women in leadership roles. Heidrick & Struggles is committed to developing these networks and their brands.  We recognize that senior and diverse leadership is an important requirement for succession planning. We believe that there is a real opportunity to provide leadership to how organizations engage, retain and develop their female talent pipeline. As a premier provider of leadership and advisory services, we are well placed to advise on, and assess the development of the executive talent pipeline, that includes but is not limited to, women and diversity candidates.
