At Fortuna, we appoint Directors to our Board based on their skill, experience and commitment to good governance. Our Board sets the tone for our organization and fulfils our obligations to our stakeholders. Their role is to supervise the management and development of the company and to act in the best interests of the company.
The Mandate of the Board of Directors outlines the fiduciary obligations of our directors, including position descriptions, responsibilities, meeting schedules and committees. The company requires between five and eight directors, the majority of whom should be independent, to effectively manage our affairs. For 2021, our Board is composed of seven directors: five men and two women. Five of the seven directors are independent.
