What We Do
It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to WOBs JO website.
In this ever-changing world, the complexities and competitiveness in conducting business in a global environment are driving the upper echelons of the public and private sectors to rethink their strategies. It is within this context that the boards of directors alongside their upper levels of management have recognized the importance of advocating for sound policies to overcome the marginalization of gender diversity policies and practices in their professional spheres. They are currently valuing the introduction of more mechanisms and techniques to overcome the female under-representation at the upper echelons of the leadership arrangements. Boards of directors are exploring innovative approaches to diversify their boards’ compositions and assessing the prospects of a paradigm shift in this direction. Concrete measures are being undertaken to include professional women in such contexts.
Understanding your capabilities, activating your networks and matching your skills and experience with the needs and requirements of corporate boards could increase your chances of gaining a seat in the boardroom, and WOBs JO is here to take you to this very next chapter.
