WEBCAST

Is the board helping the business keep pace?

Webcast overview

The past 12 months have upended the norms of business. With mounting complexity and uncertainty—and greatly amplified expectations for companies to help address societal challenges—how are boards keeping pace and helping the business position itself for the future?

The forces reshaping the business landscape—COVID-19; an incoming Biden administration focused on climate, racial justice, and other social issues; digital acceleration; and demands for companies to step up to the needs of stakeholders—should be prompting introspection in the boardroom: Is the board helping the company navigate pressing near-term challenges—including difficult social and public policy issues and stakeholder/activist demands—while also thinking about the future? What changes might be needed—in the board’s perspective, composition, practices, or priorities—to help ensure the board itself is keeping pace?

This 60-minute webcast with Melissa Sawyer, co-head of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP’s Corporate Governance & Activism Practice, and Irene Chang Britt, experienced board director, explored the forces that are putting businesses, boards, and governance to the test in the months ahead.
