Women On Board Publishes 2nd Edition of Women On Board Source

The Source for 60+ Exceptional Women Corporate Board Candidates 
VANCOUVER, Dec. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Women On Board announced today the 
publication of the 2(nd) Edition of Women On Board Source, a searchable, 
online listing now featuring over 60 qualified women corporate board 
candidates for appointment in Canada. 
Women On Board Source helps boards and search firms find and connect with 
highly qualified women corporate board candidates. The 60+ women featured in 
Women On Board Source were nominated and then selected for participation in 
the Women On Board Mentoring Program because of their strong candidacy for 
corporate board service. They are top executives and professionals across 
Canada, each with an impressive depth of experience in their industry. Many 
have expertise in areas like accounting, executive compensation, legal and 
regulatory requirements, investment management, risk management, venture 
capital, and more. All of them are experienced board members having served on 
various types of corporate boards, committees, and non-profit boards. As part 
of their participation in the mentoring program, the women are mentored by 
prominent Board Chairs or CEOs who help them achieve their goal of attaining a 
corporate board appointment by advising them and advocating for them. 
"I have spent time getting to know my mentee, so I know what she is capable of 
and how she can add value to a board. She is an exceptional board candidate. I 
can vouch for that," said Rick George, Director, Royal Bank of Canada, Former 
President and CEO, Suncor Energy, and mentor to Fiona Macdonald, Managing 
Director, Executive Compensation, Canada and US West, Towers Watson. 
Each Director Profile in Women On Board Source provides a one-page synopsis of 
the candidate's employment, education, skills, industry and international 
experience, key accomplishments, board-related experience, and includes the 
name of the candidate's mentor. Board members and search consultants can 
search Women On Board Source to find board candidates who have the experience 
and skills they are looking for. 
"Women On Board Source is a good resource for boards and search firms because 
it brings to their attention women who are strong board candidates who they 
might not know or find on their own. If these women aren't already on their 
radars, they should be," said Donald Lowry, President and CEO of EPCOR 
Utilities, Chair of Canadian Oil Sands and Capital Power.
