How does your organization consider succession planning for its board? Continual evaluation of directors and their interactions with one another and management should be high on a board’s agenda. Sound governance relies on having directors who not only have the requisite skills but who provide different perspectives, experiences, and can express diversity in thought and ideas that can break down an issue or an opportunity and see it through different lenses.
Webinar Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize broad characteristics beneficial to corporate governance that can define diversity in the boardroom.
  • List the benefits of having a diverse board of directors.
  • Identify leading practices for assessing and reacting to needs to diversify your board.
