SID Board Readiness Programme

Empowering Aspiring Directors for Future-Ready Boards


About SID Board Readiness Programme
The SID Board Readiness Programme is designed to prepare senior executives and professionals for board directorship positions.
The one-year programme takes attendees through a comprehensive development journey, which includes self-assessment, professional training, board simulation exercises, mentorship and professional networking.

Delivered by SID and its pre-eminent knowledge partners from across the governance ecosystem, the holistic programme seeks to raise awareness of the risks and opportunities confronting board directors. It focuses on equipping attendees with the essential knowledge and skills required of board directors.

The first edition, to be launched on 28 July 2023, is in collaboration with Singapore Computer Society Women in Tech Chapter (SCS WIT). By expanding the talent pool of board-ready women leaders with a background or expertise in tech, the goal is to increase board diversity in terms of gender and functional expertise.
