GCC

The 30% Club GCC is a regional volunteer effort of multi-sector leaders working together towards better representation of women on boards and in senior level positions.  We work in collaboration to accelerate pace of change and support the growth of a healthy pipeline of talented and capable women that are ready to serve in senior positions across various sectors.

We strongly believe that business-led change is the right way forward; and as such, we support women to realize their potential through mentorship, executive education, research, and we also advocate good governance to support women to serve on boards.

The 30% Club GCC chapter was established in 2015.
