Precinct supports Women on Boards

More PNG women will have the skills and confidence to serve on boards of management after new training being rolled out by the Pacific Leadership and Governance Precinct.

Digicel Foundation CEO Beatrice Mahuru (left) and PNG Women Doctors Association President Lydia Sirigoi (right) are among those undertaking the course, delivered by the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

It focuses on directors’ responsibilities, risk assessment and decision-making frameworks for directors on public and private boards.

Participants included senior and emerging leaders from the public and private sectors.

The Pacific Leadership and Governance Precinct is a partnership between Papua New Guinea and Australia to develop a new generation of ethical leaders who can implement Government of PNG priorities for improved service delivery for the people.
