100 Champions of Change

As the CEO of the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) and the President of the Centre for Non-profit Leadership (CNPL), I would like to see more women on non-profit boards. While we do not have exact figures, we do know that non-profit boards are still dominated by men, even though women form majority of the workforce in charities in Singapore.
Women comprise about 43% of members serving on American non-profit boards, even while women made up only 16% of those serving on S&P500 company boards. So the potential for more women to sit on non-profit boards is large.
