Event Details

Gender-balanced boards are proven to result in greater business success and the Women’s Directorship Programme has been created in answer to the worldwide business community’s call to tackle the existing gender diversity imbalance in boardrooms.

Faculty of Business and Economics, the University of Hong Kong and Harvey Nash Executive Search have joined forces with senior business leaders to create the first certificated, internationally focused, cross industry, board preparedness programme, exclusively for women.

Board members face new challenges and increases in responsibility since the recent wave of governance reform swept in. Directors need to be better prepared – beyond just compliance – to best represent the interests of shareholders and stakeholders.

Through a comprehensive combination of lectures, interactive sessions, leadership exercises and input from senior business leaders, the Women’s Directorship Programme addresses current and contemporary issues in the workplace, across industries and geographies, helping women to be more effective at managing boards and increasing the pool of board-ready women executives.
