Director Orientation Workshop (DOW)

Good Corporate Governance is a balance of power between Shareholders, Directors and Managers. It is about making corporate leadership more accountable to shareholders while recognizing that other stakeholders also contribute to the long-term success of the organization. Corporate Governance is no longer a local or a national issue for directors and businesses. Shareholders all over the world are exerting a greater level of scrutiny over corporate leadership and its performance. Complex legislations have been introduced in the developed countries, compliance with which is increasingly being made mandatory for businesses. To assist the corporate leadership of Pakistan in responding to these challenges, and to ensure continuous professional development at the highest corporate level, Pakistan Institute of Corporate Governance (PICG) has introduced “Directors Orientation Workshop” (DOW).
