Executive search firm Harvey Nash and The University of Hong Kong say they have plans to create the world’s first certificated, cross-industry, international board preparedness programme for women, to be held in Hong Kong in April.
The Women’s Directorship Programme has been created as an answer to the worldwide business community’s call to tackle the existing gender diversity imbalance in boardrooms across the globe and invites senior industry leaders to share their knowledge.
Chief executive Albert Ellis said:
“Sustainable business success requires the support of a mature and diverse board, and gender-balance around the boardroom table is a key element in this. “Harvey Nash’s partnership is demonstrating commitment to Asia, its important institutions and in particular, our investment in future female talent.”
