  • CPE Information
  • Speakers
Boards of directors today represent not only shareholders, but a broader constituency including employees, customers and communities. These stakeholders expect the board to be diverse in order to bring different perspectives into the conversation. Join BDO and our guests – an institutional investor and sitting directors – as we discuss the benefits of diversity and how this is being accomplished in the boardroom.
Learning Objectives
  • Explain the benefits of having diversity in the boardroom.          
  • Discuss the transition in the boardroom from "former CEOs" to a collection of "subject matter experts", increasing the opportunity to diversify the board across gender, race, ethnicity, age, and experience.
  • Explore succession planning for the board through the use of a skills matrix comparison of current board members skills and those needed to support the company's long-term strategic plan.
