Good Governance for Non-Profit Organizations in Latin America



Components of Organizational Governance

Nonprofit organizations are a key player in economic and social development, especially in emerging countries where poverty and the concentration of wealth are more extreme. However, social entrepreneurs not only face challenges in terms of obtaining financial and non-financial resources, but they also need to design appropriate governance and management models to guarantee the sustainability of their organizations.

In this session, experts in organizational governance will discuss issues related to boards of directors, managerial succession, human talent, and organizational structure to help guide non-profit leaders. The conversation will seek to encourage the implementation of a good organizational governance model that allows the growth, management and consolidation of non-profit organizations vital to the economic and social development of the region.
