Institutes of Directors (IoD) Networks promote corporate governance at the regional level through enhanced training and skill development for directors.

This report looks at similarities among successful IoD networks, including by speaking with several network members and IFC representatives across the globe. The report also analyzes the benefits and key takeaways from networks in Latin America, Africa, North America, and Europe to leverage synergies to develop effective and sustainable networks.
