Yale Career Fireside Chats – Serving on Boards
Tuesday, April 11, 2017


This event is the second in a new series of fireside chats covering career-related issues. Unlike the “Yale Career Panels: A Candid View of Professions” series that focuses on specific professions, this series is comprised of one hour conversations with one or two individuals about career related topics. The first fireside chat was held in December and covered “Managing Major Career Changes”
We are pleased to have two very accomplished individuals who have had deep and varied experiences as members of boards of directors of public and private companies, as well as non-profit organizations.
They will talk about how one gets on boards; what one can expect as a board member in terms of your commitment and role; the issues that are facing boards today; the differences in one’s board experience if it is a public, private, or non-profit organization; the dark sides of board membership (time commitment, personal liability; the board experience during major crises and events; and the various myths (good and bad) about board membership.
The fireside chat will be broadcast via an interactive streaming video system. The fireside chat will last for 45 minutes and will be followed by a 15 minute Q&A session.
Time: April 11, 2017 from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm EST
