GNDI Global Passport

The Mauritius Institute of Directors is a member of the Global Network of Director Institutes (GNDI), an international collaboration of membership organisations sharing expertise in corporate governance and professional director development.

Members of the Mauritius Institute of Directors can take advantage of the global program launched by the Global Network of Director Institutes (GNDI) which will unlock access to benefits and governance resources for directors from around the world. 

The Global Passport allows directors who are members of their GNDI home country member organisation to access benefits from affiliated director institutes at discounted rates. Benefits include subscriptions to member-only publications, online governance resources, special pricing for events and director registry services, among others.

The Global Passport program provides opportunities for directors to learn from their international colleagues and to keep current on global business and governance trends that affect their organisations.

GNDI enables directors worldwide to stay abreast of leading practices as well as current and emerging governance issues. It is designed to foster closer cooperation between its members, who are globally recognised for their pre-eminence in board and director development activity and collectively represent more than 100,000 individual directors.
