Company Description

OnBoard, formerly the Board of Directors Network (BDN), was founded in 1993 by Margaret “Peggy” (Espinda) LaFreniere. Inspired by a conference put on by The International Alliance for Women regarding women on boards, Peggy and the 37 other charter members started OnBoard. The initial focus was increasing the number of women on corporate boards of both public and private companies. The mission later expanded to include women in leadership positions because those women were in the best position to fill the pipeline of qualified women to serve on corporate boards. OnBoard was among the first organizations in the country to recognize that the mission to increase the number of women on boards would require an organized effort. And the first, in the United States, to field a study benchmarking the number of women on corporate boards. The OnBoard study has been reporting progress for Georgia public companies since 1993. OnBoard was a founding member of ION, the InterOrganization Network, a national nonprofit umbrella organization dedicated to increasing the number of women on for-profit boards and in executive suites.
