Women Corporate Directors Network
The Women Corporate Directors Network is an initiative by the Institute of Corporate Directors Zimbabwe that seeks not only to increase the number of women in executive and board positions, but to take them through training and mentorship so they are better placed to execute these roles. The Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment (No 20) Act, 2013 pronounces itself clearly in that, Section 17 provides that the State must promote full gender balance in Zimbabwean society, promote full participation of women in all spheres, on the basis of equality with men. It set a target of at least 50% membership in all institutions and agencies of government at every level. This is also in support of Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) Number 5 which seeks to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

Youth on Boards Zimbabwe (YoBZ)
