About SID Board Readiness Programme
The one-year programme takes attendees through a comprehensive development journey, which includes self-assessment, professional training, board simulation exercises, mentorship and professional networking. As part of the programme, attendees can opt to take the Accreditation Exam to earn the SID Accredited Director credential.

Delivered by SID and its pre-eminent knowledge partners from across the governance ecosystem, the holistic programme seeks to raise awareness of the risks and opportunities confronting board directors. It focuses on equipping attendees with the essential knowledge and skills required of board directors.

On 28 July 2023, the first edition of BRP which launched as SID-SCS Women in Tech Board Readiness Programme (SID-SCS WIT BRP). A collaboration with Singapore Computer Society Women in Tech Chapter (SCS WIT), this version of BRP was exclusive to SCS WIT. The aim was to expand the talent pool of board-ready women leaders with a background or expertise in tech, so as to increase board diversity in terms of gender and functional expertise.

The second edition, to be launched in July 2024, will see two tracks of BRP being conducted concurrently – the SID-SCS WIT BRP for women in tech senior executives, and SID BRP for SID members. Having two tracks conducted concurrently will allow attendees to cross pollinate ideas with attendees from diverse backgrounds and enhance peer-learning.
