Josephine Oguta, Regional Governance Adviser for West and East Africa, World Vision International

Board Governance as Institutional Linchpin or a Necessary Bureaucracy?

Good Cooperate Governance is said to be the linchpin to sustainable organizations. World Vision --one of the largest and most influential Western transnational NGOs –believes that its institutional strategy is dependent on good Board governance. NGO board policies and practices are supposed to keep organizational practices in check, yet NGOs have not escaped governance failures. This has led to headlines such as “Who is guarding the guardian?”

The talk by Ms. Ogutawill look at role of the Board and why boards are important (or not) against the backdrop of some examples of nonprofit failures. She is a well-known governance specialist, who also has helped shape the governance of ActionAidand other major transnational NGOs.

Lunch will be provided.
