I gained an extraordinary network of colleagues who I look forward to engaging with and continuously learning from. I can’t recommend the program enough to any interested leaders!

ESG Competent Boards is not about telling people what they should do but instead giving people tools and building soft skills to have informed conversations that lead to sound decisions about how to do things better. So many times, we ask ourselves, what are our peers are doing? ESG Competent Boards provides the forum to get some answers.

ANI HOTOYAN-JOLY

INDEPENDENT CORPORATE DIRECTOR

My classmates and I learned from each other and we developed lifelong friendships. I left each one of the 12 sessions invigorated and excited about the opportunity to apply what I have learned and through this process, I believe I have become a more valuable board member. Even if you have other board designations, you will still benefit from this very insightful and valuable certificate program.

Welcome, which course are you interested in:

The Board Member course is designed for people who hold a position on the board of a publicly traded organization.

The Business Professional course is designed for people who hold senior positions within an organization.
