Women Lead the Board – Training

Tuesday August 2nd, 2016


Welcome to Women Lead the Board

Good corporate governance is a pre-requisite for the successful operation of every organisation, whether in the private, public or third sector. Understanding good governance is a key responsibility for anyone in leadership roles, or who aspires to leadership.

The benefits of creating diverse boards are very clear; diverse boards are better overseers of corporate activities and are less likely to share common assumptions. Put simply, diverse Boards make better decisions. The composition of boards needs to change. There is work to do in all sectors to maximise this potential and address some of the gaps in terms of age, gender and ethnicity. Women Lead the Board prepares individuals to take up, or progress to more senior board appointments over an intensive short programme, complementing the core skills participants bring with corporate governance experience.

Women Lead the Board is part of a series of programmes designed to better equip those who want to contribute to the leadership of an organisation. The aim of the Programme is to provide both a theoretical perspective to good governance and training in its practical application; it aims to enable its graduates to make valuable and strategic contributions to organisations in the not for profit sector, in particular housing.

The Programme was developed by The Governance Forum (TGF) and has been accredited by the Association of Corporate Governance Practitioners (ACGP). It has been delivered successfully to a range of groups: young people, sports people, and senior women. The sport based programmes are sponsored by the FA, the PFA and the Professional Cricketers Association. All of the Programmes are facilitated by experienced individuals with real practical experience on boards and all share the ability to communicate this experience clearly and concisely with direct benefit for participants. This programme will be delivered by Central Consultancy and Training, housing partners of TGF.
