2021 Directors’ Alert

A new era of board stewardship

The 2021 Directors’ Alert includes interviews with various global directors and insights on the new social contract between business and society. Over three editions, we cover topics such as the COVID-19 pandemic response and recovery, and trust and purpose. We’ll also examine environmental, social, and governance (ESG) aspects, including climate and sustainability.

Many organizations will need to transform themselves to overcome the systemic challenges and inequities that have surfaced during COVID-19. Change will require bold steps—and new skills—from board leadership.
