An introduction to cultural competency for board members.
Take on Board is the podcast where we talk all things Boards and governance.
Join us for an introduction to cultural competency with Jillian West.
At this event you’ll also get the chance to be part of this by asking questions.
You’ll also get to meet some of the Take on Board community not only from Australia, but across the world!
Let us know if you have any queries – otherwise, we look forward to seeing you there!
