IOG partners with Dalhousie University to deliver innovative board governance training
The Institute on Governance is partnering with Dalhousie University to bring a unique national program designed to assist executive directors, board chairs and other board members deepen their understanding and practice of governance as the exercise of leadership inside and outside the boardroom. Improving Non-Profit Governance involves peer learning, coaching, and the application of ideas from a wide range of learning resources and tools supplied.
The philosophy of the program is that organizational governance involves a variety of functions and structures. Boards are a key player in this work, with particular roles to assume and others they need to step up to depending on the complexity of their organization’s work and circumstances. But boards are not the only part of the leadership team. Executive directors have a significant role to play in governance, as do other actors including, in many circumstances, external stakeholders. The idea of governance involving both deliberative and facilitative work is one that will liberate and engage non-profit energy.
