We are heartbroken by the events unfolding across the U.S.

Here at GOVERN for IMPACT we believe Martin Luther King Jr. was right when he said, “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.

A Message from Our GOVERN for IMPACT Chair, Hartger Wassink

This is a very challenging period for Govern for Impact. As it is for all other organizations, businesses and people worldwide. Now, more than ever, we as a board are aware of the importance of knowing our proper responsibility and work from the values of our owners. Now, more than ever, it is important to keep building a dedicated, knowledgeable community, committed to excellence in governance, driven by the vision that people all around the world benefit from excellent boards.

Govern for Impact has been faced with other challenges in our short history. If we rely on the same logic, faith in our community and belief in our values, as we have used before, I am confident that we will get through this difficult situation too. Let’s take on this challenge and help the world in showing how systematic, owner-accountable governance can help to adapt to quickly changing circumstances, while keep being focused on a common purpose.

I wish you the best for the health and safety of you and your loved ones. Hopefully, we’ll be able to meet again in person soon.

On behalf of the Govern for Impact board of directors,
Hartger Wassink, CGO
