Webinar SwissFoundations – A date not to miss in this beginning of 2022!

January 2022

The involvement of the younger generations in the governance process or decision-making consultations seems to be on the agenda for 2022. Several initiatives are being developed, some of which offer training opportunities. Board for Good, an innovative sheltered fund that grants scholarships to young people under 35 years of age to promote learning and exchange around good practices in terms of composition and sometimes succession within boards of public utility foundations in Switzerland.

Who can apply for these scholarships? What are the existing training courses? What are the expectations of young people and boards?

To delve into these questions, SwissFoundations is organising a webinar on the importance of integrating younger generations into Foundation Boards. This webinar will be held on 27 January, with our support at WISE and the Foundation Board Academy. Interactive and hands-on, you will have the opportunity to discover during this webinar the experience and ideas of our four speakers.
