We are looking for an experienced Director to head up the Climate Governance Initiative, whose purpose is to enable effective climate corporate governance on boards. The Initiative is moving on from initial start-up mode and its new, dedicated Director will play a lead role in this next phase of development.
The Climate Governance Initiative was established in 2019 by the World Economic Forum and supports the growth of groups of board directors around the world to form networks, known as Chapters. Since 2020, the Secretariat for the Climate Governance Initiative has been hosted within the Centre for Climate Engagement at Hughes Hall, which plays a unique role in bringing leading academic research to board directors in a format that enables change.
The new Director will lead the Climate Governance Initiative team to build on the growth to date and further the development of the infrastructure, communications and contact-management processes. Heading up the Initiative team and, together with the Board, the Director will ensure continued development of the strategy and will provide an externally facing leadership role for the Initiative. The Director will liaise with Chapters and the CCE content team to provide input for thought leadership that is relevant and digestible for board members, addressing current and emerging high impact topics.
