Directors Quarterly: October 2021

Our CEO Outlook, the U.S. economic forecast, climate on the board agenda, board effectiveness, proxy season, diversity disclosure, and more.

In this edition of Directors Quarterly, we share highlights from our KPMG 2021 U.S. CEO Outlook survey as well as expectations for the U.S. economic forecast from KPMG Chief Economist Constance Hunter. As expectations continue to increase for companies to help address macro issues like climate change and societal inequities, we explore how board leaders are strengthening board contributions and effectiveness and offer ideas to help boards prepare for the 2022 proxy season. Our financial reporting and auditing update highlights developments that audit committees should be monitoring, and we report on the nascent stages of board diversity disclosure among Russell 3000 and S&P 500 companies.
