A View from the Top: Leaders on the Roles and Goals of Corporate Boards in 2023

Monday, May 1, 2023
04:00 PM - 05:00 PM PDT
Beverly Hilton - Wilshire Garden

Corporate boards are often the first and easiest way to sense the priorities and values of a corporation, especially as they relate to diversity, investment, management, and growth opportunities. While no two boards look or act identically, the issues they grapple with are often the same: leadership, ethics, compensation, and risk, to name just a few. Ultimately, the buck stops there. What are the greatest challenges and opportunities facing corporate boards—and more importantly, board members—today? How are board members balancing continuous pressures to let their businesses grow and scale, while working to empower their C-suites to establish and maintain cultures of excellence that align with the organization's priorities and values? Join this searching conversation on the changing role and goals of board members.  

This session is one of a three-part series focused on corporate leadership around ESG issues.
