What Will the Post-Pandemic Board of Directors Look Like?

Companies need boards built to exercise collaborative oversight with diverse skill sets.

The pandemic and other recent events are presenting new challenges for public and private companies alike, from supply chain risks to heightened shareholder concern about environmental, social and corporate governance issues. Many large organizations will need to rethink their board makeup in the new normal. The background experience and knowledge that have traditionally been sought after in board directors may not be sufficient to lead today's companies into the future.

This year, the Private Company Governance Summit looks at lessons learned in risk management and ESG over the past year and then explore how private company boards can become even more useful—and essential—to the success of the companies they serve.
