ICD Achieves Gender Parity in the Boardroom
Updated: Jul 29
“Inclusion and diversity are at risk in the crisis – but are critical for business recovery, resilience, and reimagination.”
Last 19 June 2020, ICD conducted its Annual General Membership Meeting (AGMM) through Zoom Webinar. The results of the elections paved way to greater heights for ICD by walking the talk of attaining a diverse board and having 50% women directors. A milestone for the Institute that hopefully other companies will embody in navigating unchartered waters. The Trustees of ICD are committed to strengthen the advocacy and ensure the organization’s sustainability:
Mr. Rex C. Drilon II, Chairman
Ms. Sherisa P. Nuesa, Vice-Chair and President
Ms. Ma. Aurora Geotina-Garcia, Treasurer
Atty. Benedicta Du-Baladad (newly elected)

Ms. Tomasa H. Lipana
Atty. Pedro H. Maniego
