After an intense year of crisis management for many boards, the question now is what next?
How do boards set strategic priorities that balance competing priorities of pandemic recovery, board diversity and inclusion, and more, at a moment when board members may be burning out?
Join us for an expert panel discussion with leaders of Board Ready Women, Point West Credit Union – a financial organization with inclusive community in its declared beliefs, and Aprio. Come to hear a candid, practical discussion on how to best manage your board right now and pitch your own questions to the panel.
This may be the most intense moment of change for boards in the last few decades. Pandemic recovery and board diversity and inclusion are current top boardroom priorities, according to a survey of more than 100 organizations by the Society of Corporate Governance and Deloitte. That’s a demanding set of goals on top of other organization objectives, especially for small and mid-sized organizations.
How do you make sure your board sets the right governance objectives, has the right board skill sets, and the right agenda and communication to navigate and stay agile the years ahead?
Join our panel discussion to ready your board for 2021 and beyond.
