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

George Anderson is a Consultant at Spencer Stuart, where he advises boards and conducts director searches. He also leads the firm’s Board Effectiveness Services in North America.

Amy Borrus is deputy director of the Council of Institutional Investors, where she plays a lead role in developing the Council’s strategy and policies on corporate governance, along with outreach to stakeholders and policymakers.

Megan Shattuck is the President of Talent Advisory practice at Teneo where she counsels clients on a wide range of matters including board effectiveness and board succession planning.
