As part of Pearl Initiative’s mission to bring together businesses, decision makers and future young leaders, to take the lead in promoting and adopting greater governance standards. In delivering on our mission, and as part of our programmes, we conduct several student engagement initiatives, including our Business Pledge sessions.
The Business Pledge sessions highlight the key role the Private Sector plays in promoting responsible and sustainable growth based on good corporate governance practices in the Gulf region and provides students the opportunity to engage with business leaders and learn first-hand how they apply corporate governance principles within their businesses. The Pledge sessions focus on four areas including:
• Setting Targets for Sustainable & Responsible Growth
• A More Inclusive Workplace
• Promoting Integrity
• Collaboration & Partnerships
This session will highlight the importance of setting clear and measurable objectives and assessing impact when implementing corporate governance standards.
