Women On Boards

The Women on Boards Executive Program is aimed at empowering women in private and public sector companies so that they have access to direction and supervisory bodies and also targets women already holding such positions, who wish to develop their skills, in a Fit-and-Proper context.

This Program combines a theoretical-practical approach to management, legal and behavioral matters essential to the performance of duties in direction and supervisory bodies with a strong component of active and participatory learning, which can be adapted to the specific needs of the trainees.

  • Development of knowledge and skills in key areas for the exercise of duties in direction and supervisory bodies, including management, legal and behavioral matters
  • Expansion of the network of contacts and sharing of experiences with keynote speakers, trainers and trainees, from reference organizations
  • Provision of a knowledge matrix to solve business practice situations

The Programme takes place in presence, at Porto Business School,  in partnership with Porto Business School and APGEI.

The Programme will takes place in presence, at Vieira de Almeida's head office in Lisbon, in partnership with ISEG - Lisbon School of Economics & Management, Porto Business School, PWN Lisbon and SHL Portugal.

"Fui surpreendida por um grupo notável de formadores/oradores e por um conjunto de temas abordados não menos notável. Conheci mulheres de entre os formadores e colegas do programa, que jamais esquecerei e que espero voltar a encontrar muitas vezes. Sinto-me realmente parte deste próspero grupo que são as WoBers."

"The program helps us to structure concepts, trends and knowledge in a very practical dimension that we will take advantage of in the performance of our roles."

“Participating in the WoB allowed me to refresh some topics but essentially to address relevant topics to take on first-line and C-level management functions, which allows me to have new tools not only for my current professional life but for my career plan.”

Mónica Garcia

"My occupation as a member of the Board of Directors of an organization has much to gain from participating in this executive program, not only for the knowledge acquired but also for the baggage obtained through the dialogue and exchange of experiences with the participants, with the guests and with the trainers. Initiatives like this are essential to prepare women for the challenging times of greater diversity that lie ahead."

Rita Sampaio Nunes

"It’s 5 days of enrichment and personal development, sharing of experiences and interests and an opportunity to discuss topics of extreme relevance in our everyday life, such as: Networking or career management. Motivating."
