The Pearl Initiative

 

The Pearl Initiative (www.pearlinitiative.org) is the leading independent, not-for-profit, by-business for-business, institution working to influence and improve corporate accountability and transparency in the Gulf Region. It is an initiative for the Private Sector to proactively take a lead itself in raising standards of governance and integrity because it makes business sense.

Developed in cooperation with the United Nations Office for Partnerships, and in programme collaboration with the United Nations Global Compact, the Pearl Initiative is a growing network of business leaders committed to driving joint action, exhibiting positive leadership and sharing knowledge and experience – in order to positively influence the entire regional business and business student community.

Since mid-2011, the Pearl Initiative has been leading programmes and producing regional insight in areas such as anti-corruption, corporate governance, family governance, gender diversity in leadership, integrated reporting and responsible business practices.
