Women’s Directors Programme
This programme trains women who are 40 years and above to be board directors of public-listed companies. Once trained, you will be entered into the registry. Companies will be able to source for qualified women candidates by submitting their request through the registry. To join the programme, you need to register your profile with the registry. Upon approval of your application, you will be notified and admitted into the Women Directors Programme. This is a KL-based programme.
This KL-based platform connects NGOs together and lets them share resources. They offer non-monetary items and ask public donors (or other NGOs) to contribute to each other. Register your NGO at NGOHub.asia
