The Modern Board: Corporate boards need a new mindset

“Leaders must now mitigate and manage a broader set of risks while no longer being judged merely by their bottom-line performance or on the quality and price of their products. They must also meet a higher standard of conduct, in their environmental and social impact; their corporate governance; and in their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.”

Corporate boards have changed drastically over the last twenty years.

“Leaders must now mitigate and manage a broader set of risks while no longer being judged merely by their bottom-line performance or on the quality and price of their products. They must also meet a higher standard of conduct, in their environmental and social impact; their corporate governance; and in their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.”

Faced with the social realities of the modern world, corporations around the globe are renewing their commitment to environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG). With this comes a fundamental change to how corporate boards function and operate. How should companies navigate this transition?

“The Modern Board will be a space in which we can share and learn, in real time, best practices for directors and C-suite executives alike to succeed and thrive while delivering real impact.”

Navigating social disclosures and the changes they produce and require is a complex process, especially as the landscape rapidly evolves.
