Non-profit directors face a duality of roles as volunteers accountable for corporate governance for their organisations. Not only do they have to comply with many boardroom expectations, but they also carry the additional responsibility of fundraising, proper stewardship of public money and volunteer risks. The challenge of exercising duty of loyalty and care in a resource-constrained environment is magnified in a landscape of growing uncertainties and complexity.
What does it really mean to be on the Board of a non-profit?
What opportunities does Covid19 present for non-profits?
How can non-profits transform to seize these opportunities?
Under ICDM Corporate Social Impact (CSI) initiative, we are delighted to have Theresa Goh, a renowned leadership coach and author of the book “Leading for Good” to share her perspectives.
ICDM aims to support the non-profit organisations with better board governance whilst nurturing purpose-driven, fresh and board-ready talents to do good together. We also hope to inspire corporate Malaysia to support non-profit organisations for the good of society, community and environment.
