Women's Foundation of Mississippi - Board Training Program for Women.

The Women's Foundation of Mississippi, in partnership with the Junior League of Jackson, is proud to offer this leadership program for ALL Mississippi women interested in board service! You can attend in person or online.

This board governance and training program will give women the tools they need to succeed and lead in the boardroom. Please join us on March 24, for a day-long training! We will have excellent speakers who will cover all aspects of board service including the duties/responsibilities of a board member, an introduction to non-profit finance, things to consider before joining a board, and a panel discussion about different paths to leadership.

The deadline to register is Wednesday, March 22, 2023.

We are thankful for the sponsorship support from the Women’s Exchange at Merrill Lynch to make this program possible and affordable for attendees!

Scholarships are available. Please contact Frances Croft at for more information.
