Second Edition of the GABV Governance Academy Launched


14 September 2023

The Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) is set to launch the second edition of the GABV Governance Academy, an exclusive educational initiative tailored for Board members of values-based banks.

In today’s intricate and ever-evolving financial landscape, governance stands as an essential pillar. Responding to a growing demand from its members for enhanced board effectiveness, GABV has reaffirmed its partnership with the Institute for Values-Based Governance to introduce the second edition of the GABV Governance Academy.

This programme has been crafted to cater to Non-Executive Directors within values-based organizations. It recognizes that effective governance at the highest level plays a pivotal role in seamlessly integrating values into every facet of mission-driven banking. Furthermore, it acknowledges that boards of values-based banks require unique skill sets and insights when compared to their conventional counterparts.

Martin Rohner, Executive Director of the GABV, emphasizes the significance of this initiative, stating:

“The GABV Governance Academy underscores our commitment to empowering values-based banks with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate today’s complex financial landscape while staying true to their mission-driven principles.”
