The National Commission for Lebanese Women (NCLW) and the Lebanese League for Women in Business (LLWB) are pleased to announce the “NCLW/ LLWB Corporate Women Directors (CWD) Program”, a partnership for building the capacity of women and preparing them for Board membership and Leadership positions.
The partnership aims to create a pool of qualified women who are internationally certified to act as corporate directors. The “NCLW/ LLWB Corporate Women Directors (CWD) Program” is developed by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) – part of the World Bank Group – and implemented by Tamayyaz EIGL.
The program comes in line with LLWB’s Women on Board 2025 initiative which aims to advocate for 30% women on boards by 2025. The first of its kind, it is designed to provide participants with tools to tackle improvement of corporate governance practices, which impact the long-term planning and procedures of the board. Covering a wide range of corporate governance issues, participants will acquire the tools for strategic supervision and administrative control, learn about the board’s role in disclosure and transparency, and understand how to protect shareholder rights. Participants will be able to become Board Certified Directors after obtaining a minimum of eight out of twelve credit hours, and scoring at least 80 per cent on the program tests.
The upcoming schedule for the program will be taking place between the period of May 2, 2019 and September 12, 2019.
Women senior executives, auditors, lawyers, board secretaries, and advisors to board members are invited to register for the second schedule of the program by April 25, 2019. Registration for the two remaining schedules will be announced closer to the schedule dates.
Participants registering through NCLW or LLWB will have access to a discount on the program registration fees or opportunities to apply to loan facilities.
