MIoD launches the Initiative for Gender Diversity in Leadership
The MIoD has launched its new project: the Initiative for Gender Diversity in Leadership.
The Initiative for Gender Diversity in Leadership was created by the Mauritius Institute of Directors (MIoD) to examine issues affecting the lack of gender diversity in leadership positions in Mauritian companies.
As part of the Initiative, different stakeholders will come together during a full day conference to identify the possible causes behind the lack of gender diversity and find sustainable solutions. The conference will be the starting point for the creation of working groups that will work on concrete solutions to the factors that may hinder the improvement of gender diversity in leadership.

Join the Initiative for Gender Diversity in Leadership conference!
This conference is part of a wider initiative created by the Mauritius Institute of Directors to examine issues affecting the lack of gender diversity in leadership positions in Mauritian companies.
As a middle-income country that has the ambition of becoming a high-income nation, Mauritius would greatly benefit from increased innovation, which in turn creates sustained economic growth. Gender diversity in leadership is an important aspect of this innovation.
Research across the world has shown that there is a clear business case for gender diversity in leadership. The conference brings together the President of the Republic, ambassadors from some of the world’s major economies, and representatives from the public and private sectors to discuss the possible causes behind the lack of gender diversity and options for long-term sustainable solutions.
