Succeeding at Succession: Navigating Transition in Board Composition

Date: Thursday, March 30, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM ET

Board composition has become a critical area of focus in the boardroom, and investors are putting on the pressure for board accountability and refreshment. Boards are increasingly taking a strategic approach to succession planning, and as they look to recruit and onboard new members, a key question they must face is how to successfully navigate the impact on board culture and chemistry.

In this 60-minute webinar, Equilar, KPMG and two sitting directors will look at this issue from multiple perspectives—a new board member in an unfamiliar environment and a board committee chair responsible for board composition and governance. Gain perspectives on how to ensure a culture of continuous improvement and optimum performance - maintaining what works while incorporating new ideas that will take your board from good to great.

Webinar Registration Fee: This webinar is complimentary to all attendees as part of the Equilar Diversity Network.
