OnBoard (https://www.onboardnow.org) was founded in 1993 with the initial focus of increasing the number of women on corporate boards of both public and private companies. It is now the leading authority on women in the boardrooms and in executive leadership of Georgia public companies. OnBoard was the first in the U.S. to field a study benchmarking the number of women on corporate boards and has been reporting on this progress for Georgia public companies since 1993. OnBoard's strategy is to advocate for more women in these positions, inspire by recognizing the role models of women on boards and in the pipeline and connect women to board opportunities.
