Investors and proxy advisors are more focused than ever before on board composition, director tenure, diversity, board effectiveness and internal evaluations. Among the topics this program will discuss are:

  • What is preventing diverse board members from being recruited? What are the challenges? Pipeline problems? unconscious (or concious) bias, closed social networks?
  • What are the latest board recruitment and succession planning trends and tools?
  • What are investors and proxy advisors seeking in the way of board term & age limits?
  • How should the board's performand and knowledge gaps be analyzed?
  • What should the role of the corporate governance committee and corporate secretary be in conducting board evaluations

This program is pending approval for 1.0 hour of MCLE credit.
