Initiatives

A comprehensive selection of what’s available for you.

Initiatives

What are they?

Initiatives, also called Networks or Alliances, are membership-based communities or groups that aim to raise awareness and support firms by facilitating news, providing tools and guidelines or organising webinars.

Why joining one?

If you wish to get support or guidance on a particular topic, this can be a way to do it. Initiatives are platforms to share challenges, identify common solutions and leverage best practices.

When joining one?

These instruments can primarily support you in the governance and strategy phases. Finding the most appropriate to your needs can depend on the theme you wish to pursue, the nature of your firm or your geographical focus.
