Hosted by The Conference Board President & CEO, Steve Odland, C-Suite Perspectives takes an objective, data-driven look at a range of business topics aimed at senior executives. Listeners will come away with what The Conference Board does best: Insights for What’s Ahead™.

In episode three, Steve sits down with Paul Washington, Executive Director of The Conference Board ESG Center, to discuss multistakeholder governance. Topics include:

The paradigm shift: What factors are driving the shift from a stockholder-focused to stakeholder-focused model?

Speaking out or staying silent: As companies face pressure to take a stand on every issue under the sun, how can they choose wisely and avoid being soft targets?

The changing skillsets: How is the multistakeholder model changing the competencies—and even the composition—of a successful C-Suite?

The value of a balanced board: Why does a board with directors fluent on many issues—rather than one filled with specialists—typically lead to better multistakeholder governance?

Is this permanent or passing? What’s making the multistakeholder governance approach a durable, lasting blueprint for companies?
