About WOB

WOB is functioning as a voluntary and self-funded initiative. WOB Pakistan was founded in 2016 and registered as a private trust in 2017. It was initially governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees, who concluded their term in 2019, after having accomplished the introduction of landmark legislative and regulatory policy changes for the inclusion of women professionals on corporate boards. Since then, the initiative’s activities are being overseen by a team of Core Founders on voluntary guidance basis.
