The Program

Social Leadership for Managers

We believe developing management skills within the social sector strongly contributes to its progress. One way of doing so is by strengthening the non-executive boards. For this reason, we have developed the Social Leadership for Managers executive education program. It is aimed at executives with vast experience in the private sector and who have the will to initiate their contribution to the social sector by taking on non-executive roles.

The program addresses topics such as the context of the sector, governance models, legal and fiscal frameworks, reports and impact measurement, and business models. It offers executives with strong management skills the much-needed social sector context and basic knowledge that will allow them to initiate their contribution. 

To whom?

  • Executives with vast private sector experience
  • People who have, or have had, middle or top management roles
  • People whose social sector knowledge is still limited but are looking to expand it
  • People who have the ambition of supporting social organizations, potentially through non-executive roles

What to expect?

  • Get familiar with the social sector
  • Learn about the sector’s challenges and modus operandi
  • Understand the role of a non-executive board member
  • Develop a network of people with the same interests, which will support your involvement with the social sector
