November 2021

Our Seminar, which will be held on March 10th, April 7th and May 19th 2022 in Geneva and Lausanne, offers to current and future members of foundation boards quality training, reconciling the pragmatism useful for managing the day-to-day life of foundations with the capacity for anticipation necessary to reflect on new organizational models, as well as on the societal challenges to come.

These three days will be an opportunity to address various themes inherent to foundation boards and to acquire best practices in the field. The presence of renowned speakers will allow participants to develop their knowledge through theoretical and practical contributions in the legal, financial and management fields. Exchange sessions will be organized in order to share best practices and experiences in the world of public interest foundations.
