That is why we are on a mission: To integrate young, outstanding leaders in decision-making capacities in future-oriented companies.

How to embed long-term thinking and sustainability  in companies? 
One approach is to include young talents in the decision-making process. 

YLoB offers companies several ways to integrate young leaders into their corporate governance.

Research shows that teams with diverse ages in leadership roles create cognitive tension that promotes learning, and that the younger generation helps bring awareness to a new set of important issues.
