About the Corporate Board Initiative

The Corporate Board Initiative, or CBI, is sponsored by Heidrick & Struggles and EY to enhance the preparedness of black executives for service on corporate boards. It builds awareness, improves readiness, and enhances the visibility of ELC members who are interested in and actively pursue corporate board service. In addition to general membership events, the cohort groups participate in workshops, webinars, individual coaching sessions, networking receptions, panel discussions, and board related conferences as part of a comprehensive development track.
