A Woman’s Place is in the Boardroom
We need more women in the C-suite and on Boards
How to we achieve that?
Why is it important?
We all know that women are under-represented at the board level in organisations, but what can we do about it? We will meet Tanja Weiher who is a board member, and supports other women to move into board position through her board mentoring programme. In the style of an interview we will hear Tanja’s personal story of how she took up a board position, what being on a board means to her and why she believes it is important. We will also learn what we could do to get more women into board positions and how we could become a board member.
Tanja is the owner and founder of weiher partners ag an independent consulting boutique based in Zurich.
She is a member of the Board of Directors of GAM Holding AG and a non-executive member of the Lorange
Institute of Business Advisory Council.
These varied leadership roles have given her significant organizational understanding and insight into the
dynamics of a global business. As an advisor to senior management, she supported businesses in defining and
executing strategies and driving transformation and change processes. Throughout her career, she has hired,
developed, and promoted numerous people in demanding and performance-oriented environments and acted
on targeted people, talent, and diversity committees. These experiences enable her to understand the
requirements and expectations of global firms as well as of their talent pool.
