  • Why companies want a diverse board.
  • How to start from the bottom and work your way up.

“Companies are really looking for somebody who brings a different perspective, you don’t just have to be a CEO to get on a board” (5:15)

“Make sure it’s a subject that’s really close to your heart, you’ll be more likely and inclined to want to spend time on them, versus the ones that perhaps aren’t as important.” (11:24)

“Look out for junior boards of some of the really big names if you’re in your 20’s, and then there’s industry boards for when you’re in your 30s or 40s.” (19:22)
