We are pleased to introduce the new Global Initiative Board, who were selected by the Global Initiative Network at the AGM in December 2016, and who will serve for the period 2017-2020.

The Board plays a critical governance role in the organisation, overseeing the strategic and programmatic work of the organisation, guiding the Secretariat in identifying and mitigating organisational risks, and overseeing the organisation’s financial and operational management.

We are very proud to have such an impressive group of committed individuals, who are each recognised thought leaders and innovators in the field.   We are further glad to have achieved regional representation, as well as gender equity in the composition of the Board, which we feel is a priority to ensure that the Global Initiative can retain its global perspective judiciously and equitably.
