Spotlight partner

Women on Boards

The Return Hub is delighted to partner with Women on Boards.

Women on Boards is a purpose-led business working to increase diversity in executive and non-executive leadership.

The Women on Boards network supports one member a day into a board position. They offer advice, inspiration, board CV support and also connect recruiting boards with diverse candidates.

Launched in the UK in 2012, they have evolved to work intersectionally with all genders. As WB Directors, they work with leading firms on their leadership development strategies – enabling under-represented talent to reach their potential and create inclusive working cultures.
