Welcome to the virtual Diversity On Board Forum, powered by HSBC. This timely event will be held 13-15 July, and will convene business, government, civil society, entrepreneurs and investors from across the Middle East and globally, to discuss how inclusive leadership and boardroom diversity can help rebuild our economies and societies. We are delighted to bring you a rich variety of panels, live masterclasses, on-demand learning, fireside chats, speed mentoring, networking, and advisory board simulations under three content tracks tailored for:

1. Women seeking a path to the boardroom.
2. Organizations that seek to capitalize on board diversity to improve performance and resilience, and manage risk in the current environment.
3. Entrepreneurs looking to structure and leverage board diversity for growth.

Speakers include CEOs and board chairpersons, astronauts and entrepreneurs, investors and venture capitalists, former ministers and current government officials, researchers and think-tanks, and women ranked among the Forbes ‘Most Influential and Powerful Women in the Middle East’.
