How to Be a Chairperson vs a Board Member

Episode 105 - Understanding the Role of Chairperson, Interview With Moana Weir (Part 2)

Episode 105 - Understanding the role of chairperson, interview with Moana Weir (Part 2)

This is the second half of my conversation with Moana Weir, the Chair of the Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission Victoria (VEOHRC). In the previous episode (104), we discussed Moana's approach to building a portfolio of board appointments, inspiring and advising executives willing to transition into governance roles. This episode focuses on her role as chair.


We discuss the difference between chairing versus being a board member, the extra responsibilities, and what that entails. We also discuss the work of the Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission. So this conversation will be exciting for both aspiring board members and chairs, executives interested in diversity and inclusion, equal opportunity, and human rights issues in the workplace. The timestamps below are a great representation of the broad range of topics we addressed.


It was an absolute pleasure to interview Moana, and I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
