New York, NY
The role of the corporate director has evolved over time, and the job has become more demanding in recent years. Structural changes in our capital markets have contributed to this. Major corporate crises and the reforms in their aftermath have also impacted what is expected of boards. The Governance Center is undertaking a year-long examination of the range of expectations of public company directors. Examining this from the perspectives of key stakeholders in the marketplace, we hope to develop a construct for how we think about the job of a director and analyze what that job entails in different situations.
To date, we have explored the role and expectations of directors from the perspectives of proxy advisory firms (March 2017), Directors (April 2017), West Coast Investors (June 2017), East Coast Investors (September 2017) Hedge Funds (November 2017), and Auditors/Regulators (September 2018), among others. In this next session we will look to public pension funds to share their thoughts.
Attendance is by invite-only, open to The Conference Board Governance Center members and invited guests of Boston University.
