As featured in the Boston Globe, Board-Ready Bootcamp is designed to improve the quality of board governance and composition at tech companies
by providing a high-impact curriculum on board fundamentals, strategy and governance. Given the lack of diversity in the tech boardroom, the bootcamp is focused on preparing underrepresented tech leaders, including African American, Latinx, LGBTQIA, and women tech executives. Participants must be current tech executives who’ve been nominated to attend and have the support of their CEO or board of directors.

MassTLC has been monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on our members. The safety of our community is of utmost concern and, as such, we have made the decision to postpone the April 9th bootcamp and combine it with the previously scheduled bootcamp on Thursday, October 8, 2020. Attendees registered for April will automatically be registered into the October session. Those wishing to defer to April or October 2021, or seeking a refund, should contact

“The MTLC Board Bootcamp is like being taken under the wing of a good friend on the first day at a new school. The highly qualified speakers demystified and explained the somewhat opaque nature of how boards work and clearly laid out how and why to be on a board.”

– Jules Pieri, Co-Founder & CEO, The Grommet

“Personally speaking, it raised the bar for my performance as an executive. I clearly saw areas I could improve and walked away with actions I could immediately take.”

– Joseph Maxwell, CEO, Parlance Corporation

“MassTLC’s  Board-Ready Bootcamp is now the gold standard for every business or professional organization that is serious about racial and gender diversity on boards within their industry. Everything about the Bootcamp was well thought out and flawlessly orchestrated. The room itself was inclusive from participants to faculty members and panelists. It was an amazing day.”

– Colette A. Phillips, President/CEO, Colette Phillips Communications
