What is good governance? What structures, functions, systems, work best for social benefit organisations? Why does good governance matter, and what can it do for your organisation?

IWhat is good governance? Why is it essential for all types and social benefit organisations: Associations, foundations, NGOs, INGOs, social businesses…

We will look at principles of good governance, how to put them into practice through governance structures and systems, discuss common challenges, and solutions to ensure the smooth functioning of your organisation.

In Part II of the workshop (20.00 – 21.30) drawing on what we’ve learnt from Part I we will consider the governance systems and practices in place in your organisations and identify areas and strategies to improve it.
