The main objective of the Women on Board Association Turkey (WOB Turkey) has been to promote social development by increasing female representation on boards of directors since its establishment in 2017.
“Yönetim Kurulunda Daha Çok Kadın/ Boardrooms Need Women” Project, coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Directorate for EU Affairs and the Ministry of Treasury and Finance's Central Finance and Contracts Unit, was run throughout 2019. This project aimed to increase WOB Turkey's capacity and indirectly its contribution to society.
WOB Turkey targets to realize its community development vision by preparing women at the top management of companies for their roles on Boards and trying to convince its stakeholders for this purpose.
With this project, the capacity of the Association has been expanded and its administrative, communication and advocacy skills have been significantly improved.
