July 25, 2014 – Heidrick & Struggles International has launched a new network for women directors in the U.K. called The Board Network, which is designed to bring together women board directors from a diverse range of commercial businesses and social enterprises. More than 50 women board directors participated in The Board Network's inaugural launch event July 15 in London. "The Board Network creates a forum for networking opportunities for women board directors, and serves as a conduit for our client companies and social enterprises to engage with top-level board talent. This peer-to-peer interaction will help connect women directors across industry sectors, which is critical for those wanting to serve on additional boards," said Jenni Hibbert, a partner in Heidrick & Struggles' London CEO & board practice. Heidrick & Struggles is a provider of senior-level executive search and leadership advisory services, including succession planning, executive assessment, talent retention management, executive development, transition consulting for newly appointed executives, and M&A human capital integration consulting.
