Events

(Be)coming together

Build connections with Chairs, SIDs (Senior Independent Directors), EPOC (Empowering People of Colour) members and guests at our in-person and virtual events. 

In the words of one of our guests "This was one of the best events I have attended in a long-time regarding board ethnicity and how to get more involved."

In addition to dedicated networking time to meet with current EPOC members, our events include our “Board’s Eye View” talks from subject matter experts, insights from the Board practices of leading search firms and practical hands-on support to craft your NED (Non-Executive Director) Board CV.

Save the dates of our upcoming EPOC events below, and do register early to avoid disappointment,
