IFC has launched its family business governance video to help raise awareness, build capacity and expand the discussion on the topic to ensure that more family businesses in emerging markets and developing countries have the opportunity to grow in a sustainable manner and to share experiences from IFC clients. This is an area of particular importance to the IFC corporate governance program globally.

See what difference good corporate governance makes for a company’s bottom line, and for lives of its customers and partners. The Global Corporate Governance Forum is happy to present stories from Alumni of its Board Leadership Training in Malawi: “Corporate Governance Saves Money… and Lives,” “Increased Lending to Women and Small Businesses” and “Trickle-Down Effect in Human Rights, Labor, Environment, and Anti-Corruption Practices”.
As part of its project in Malawi, the Forum enhanced the capacity of the Institute of Directors of Malawi by training a cadre of CG trainers. Building on the existing Corporate Governance Board Leadership Training Resources, the Forum and the IODM jointly developed a localized curriculum to respond to the needs of the Malawi market. The trainers are now equipped to provide robust training programs to directors of local companies. Two alumni of the training program illustrate tangible benefits of implementing good corporate governance practices.

The Re-birth of Private Equity in M&A and the Role of the Board
by Lucy Marcus for Marcus Ventures, October 28th, 2010.
Lucy’s TEDTalk: Lucy spoke at TEDxNewSt about the changing role of the non-executive director in today’s world. She touched on how non-executive board directors need to demand more of themselves and their colleagues, and about being active, engaged, independent, and accountable board members and the different areas that board members need to be looking at today and tomorrow, from social responsibility to diversity, and from engaging with stakeholders to being willing to challenge the company even if it feels uneasy.
