Deloitte collaborates with the International Corporate Governance Network to support development of corporate governance leaders
New York, 3 July 2013– Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) today announced that it has joined forces with the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN) to launch the ICGN Deloitte scholarship program. The collaboration will support the development of five corporate governance leaders from Indonesia, Nigeria, the Netherlands, Pakistan, and Peru.
The objective of the program is to provide support to individuals working predominantly in difficult or emerging market environments so they can globalize local corporate governance practices; aligning with the international progression of business. The scholarship will provide each scholar with mentorship from well- respected governance leaders. The mentors, with support of ICGN and DTTL, will guide the scholars’ development and exposure to leading thought leaders, global developments, and leading practices within the corporate governance sphere over the three years of the program.
Dan Konigsburg, Managing Director, DTTL’s Global Center for Corporate Governance, comments: “Effective corporate governance is fundamental to strong and functioning capital markets, and a bed-rock of transparency and audit quality. Good governance comes down to individuals and what they do, which is why Deloitte is proud to support the ongoing development of professionals who have a strong track record in contributing to corporate governance. The program will also help enable the propagation of good governance practices across the globe, which serves the twin goals of market confidence and financial stability.”
ICGN will be provided with $50,000 per year to support the scholarship program that includes attendances at ICGN conferences and other professional development programs.
