Event Overview

Equilar and Nasdaq are excited to offer a half-day program to help public company board members, general counsel and corporate secretaries drive success in their organizations. Investors’ emphasis on board transparency, accountability and independence is intensifying, and as a result today’s boards face a seemingly never-ending set of risks, governance decisions and strategic initiatives.

The goal of the Board Leadership Forum is to empower participants to build higher performing boards through improved processes, strengthened director evaluations and recruitment efforts, and more effective shareholder engagement.

Why Attend

The role of the board of directors has evolved dramatically over the past few decades and has taken on new meaning in this era of increased transparency and shareholder engagement. This forum brings together directors, senior executives, investors and corporate governance experts in an effort to address some of the most pressing issues facing boards today. We’ll discuss board leadership and culture, ES&G, succession planning (both CEO and board) and shareholder engagement.

The breadth of our panelists’ experience provides a wealth of information for board members and senior executives, as well as the investors who engage with them.

Come for the expertise. Stay for the conversation.
