Resource Sharing Library

Our Women in TPRM Resource Sharing Library contains a variety of women in business-related materials. Included are reports on the latest women in business trends and statistics, blogs and articles on relevant and current happenings, and TED Talks featuring inspiring women in business educating others on how to navigate the business world and find success in their careers. 

Leadership Ladders

Originally developed by TPRA's Women in TPRM "Lead" work group, this training activity is designed for all current & aspiring leaders within the Third Party Risk Management (TPRM) industry. Inspired by the classic "Shoots and Ladders" game, it is an all-in-one roadmap to leadership in the form of a nostalgic, virtual board game! Each box on the board is linked to a valuable resource–including customized guides, blogs, videos, quizzes, and more–with the goal of enhancing your leadership potential through buildable skills and expert insights. Any professional, regardless of what stage they're at in their career, can find value in this activity.

"Diversity matters not just because increasing representation of minorities and women in a fast growing and critical field is the right thing to do, but because a variety of viewpoints are key to solving hard problems."

SVP, General Counsel - Legal, Bitsight

Johanna Werbach

“...change must come from within the industry and not be mandated from external parties.”

Chief Data and Privacy Officer, MeritB2B

Karie Burt

"With different backgrounds and perspectives and voices at the table and in an environment where their contributions are really valued, you benefit from a much more expansive conversation and one that’s much more likely to uncover the full range of possibilities and solutions."
