This Pilot project aims to empower women and to ensure that they have the right skills and capabilities to function effectively on any board. Boards may be composed of various individuals with differing skill levels that focus on how to make the establishment sustainable in the long term. Boards may also spoon out various committees, such as Audit, Establishment, Risk Management, Credit Management, Disciplinary and Policy Development Committees. Both at the board level and management level, the participation of women need to be strengthened. Women participation on the board helps to strengthen the implementation of board decisions.
BPW’s PILOT project will focus on ensuring that women are ready in terms of capabilities if or when called upon to participate in committees or board level appointments.
