The Board's Role in Driving Change
Equilar and Nasdaq are excited to offer a one-day program to help public company board members, general counsel and corporate secretaries drive success in their organizations.
Investors’ emphasis on board transparency, accountability and independence is intensifying, and as a result today’s boards face a seemingly never-ending set of risks, governance decisions and strategic initiatives. The goal of the Board Leadership Forum is to empower participants to build higher performing boards through improved processes, strengthened director evaluations and recruitment efforts, and more effective shareholder engagement.
Join Equilar and Nasdaq to explore these issues and more through a comprehensive and interactive agenda that promises unique opportunities to network and exchange new ideas and solutions with other public company board members and executives.
