Increasingly, senior IT executives are interested in serving as Board Members. As IT becomes more important to a company’s success, IT executives are assuming not only CIO roles, but also CEO roles and Board positions. Board membership offers a high-impact way to leverage your expertise and skills, while making a difference in companies and the communities that they serve.
Corporate Boards are under increasing pressure to diversify their ranks - adding more women and minorities, as well as executives with different cultural and functional backgrounds – to better represent the people their organizations employ and serve. At the same time, the bar for “Board Readiness” has never been higher: Directors are scrutinized for their ability to understand more complex businesses, demonstrate technical know-how, deliver effective governance, and generate sustainable long-term performance.
Topics discussed include how to extend your impact through a Board position; the differences between Public and Private Boards; Diversity on Boards, ESG (Environment, Social & Governance) and the increasing role and importance of virtual Boards.
