According to one corporate director, “there are two places [in the United States]—the boardroom and the Supreme Court— where a lot of people go on them and think it’s for a lifetime.” But this mindset is starting to change.
This is the second part of our two-episode conversation about the evolution of corporate governance as climate change and other societal challenges become more acute. In this episode, George Anderson, Amy Borrus, and Megan Shattuck join us to discuss:
- Corporate governance outside the United States
- How turnover can help boards to achieve greater diversity
- The role of corporate leaders might play in shaping public policy
- Factors that boards are considering when selecting new directors
