Guberna in het hart van Brussel

Strategic pillars

Strategic pillars

GUBERNA strives to stimulate good governance in all types of organisations since we truly believe that good governance leads to better organisations and that better organisations contribute to a better world. To make this mission a reality, GUBERNA has three strategic pillars:


We want to inspire all governance actors to work on good governance. In this world that is quickly evolving, GUBERNA is always one step ahead in terms of governance. With relevant research projects and research themes, smart partnerships with academic and content organisations, getting the necessary sponsoring for research, data analysis of our members, expert groups, robust output and relevant position statements, GUBERNA wants to remain a leader in terms of good governance in Belgium.

Knowledge development


We want to (continue) to provide learning opportunities to stakeholders (organisations and individuals) to support them in their governance journey. By focusing on e-education and educational learning methodes we strive to keep the quality of our education programmes high for members and non-members. Further to make this vision a reality, we want to stimulate the participation of our alumni, focus on behaviour-driven content, offer more tailor-made services & tools, and work on onboarding and expanding our team of experts.

Lifelong learning


We want to stimulate a representative group of board members and organisations to share good governance best practices with each other. With national and regional community building and data collection, we strive to get to know our members better so we can further develop our offering to meet their needs. To get our message to larger groups, we will invest in new communication methodes. In addition, we will set up new memberships and smart partnerships to build on the warm GUBERNA network.


Important topics

Within the strategic pillars we identified the following five themes as relevant themes for 2020: 

  • Board Dynamics  
  • Innovation (digitalisation) and the influence of innovation on governance models and recipes
  • Resilience/agility 
  • Sustainability (definition and participation of governance actors) 
  • New developments for shareholders (Codes & Regulations)
