Directors Quarterly: July 2020

This edition of Directors Quarterly features insights from directors and business leaders on how to navigate through uncertainty and disruption, address stakeholder expectations, and prepare for the new reality amid COVID-19, deep-seated social unrest, and a global recession. Eurasia Group’s Ian Bremmer offers his view on the current geopolitical landscape. We look at trends from the recent proxy season, including the current and potential impact of COVID-19 on annual shareholder meetings, proposals, and engagements. We offer suggestions from lead directors on maintaining a strong board/CEO relationship. EqualAI’s Miriam Vogel discusses bias in artificial intelligence and how boards can help root it out. This issue also includes an update on auditing and financial reporting developments impacting companies in the near term.
