Environmental, social and governance (ESG) continues to be a hot-button topic for boards. More than ever, boards face pressure from investors to implement measures to achieve progressive goals. This panel will discuss approaches to fit modern ESG initiatives into long-term strategy and the risks boards should consider in an effort to protect the organization’s reputation.
Boards are responsible for overseeing broad human capital objectives and ensuring achievable goals are measured for success. In this discussion, panelists will assess how boards can best promote a culture steeped in talent development, engagement, and grit within their organizations to drive optimal output and enhance business performance.
As the governing board for an organization, shareholders seek directors that represent their best interests and provide strategic oversight. Honest dialogue about underperformance, assessing performance of individual board members, and evaluation of strategic goals may be a difficult conversation to initiate, but necessary. This panel will discuss strategies for effective communication and transparency for board evaluation, including refreshment and assessment of performance.
Shareholders take interest in the companies they invest in. At times shareholders may seek transformational change within an organization in the form of activism. Directors must find a way to drive strategic initiatives in accordance with shareholders to ensure that collaboration on the most pressing issues is sound. Panelists will converse on strategies to best approach activist shareholders in the short- and long-term, as well as tactics to enhance collaboration with an activist.
Equilar and Nasdaq are excited to offer a half-day program to help public company board members and senior executives drive success in their organizations. Boards today face a new set of challenges, as investors place a greater importance on board transparency and accountability.
The Board Leadership Forum aims to encourage participants to adopt effective techniques and strategies for implementing ESG initiatives, organizing human capital management, dealing with activism, and balancing board composition. This event is a great opportunity to network with industry professionals and stay up to date on the corporate governance landscape.
As shareholders move toward increased communication and transparency with the board of directors, the board’s role in strategy, communication, and human capital management has gradually evolved. As a result, there are a host of new topics on the boardroom agenda. The Board Leadership Forum brings together directors, senior executives, investors and corporate governance experts to discuss some of the most pressing issues facing boards today. Our panelists come from a variety of companies, positions, and sectors, which allows for a robust discussion with a wealth of information for directors, executives, and investors. Come for the expertise. Stay for the conversation.
