ABOUT THE WDP SERIES
Gender-balanced boardrooms and senior management teams are proven to result in greater business success, and yet women are still hugely underrepresented in boardrooms and senior positions across the world. We first set out in 2012 to address this imbalance by enabling more board-ready female leaders to rise to the challenge, through the launch of the Women's Directorship Programme.
Through a comprehensive combination of lectures, interactive sessions, leadership exercises and input from international faculty members and senior business leaders, the Women’s Directorship Programme offers a blend of both academic and practical learning. The programme serves to address contemporary issues in the workplace, across industries and geographies.
The Women’s Directorship Programme was designed by The University of Hong Kong and Meraki Executive Search & Consulting. Through our partnership we now offer an additional programme, the Women's Development Programme, for high-potential female leaders looking to transition into senior management roles.
We are committed to supporting organisations to better manage their female talent pipelines, supporting them every step of the way to ensure women leaders can reach their full potential in the workplace.
