Board Oversight of Social Issues

Acquire practical insights and a greater understanding of a board’s role in oversight of social issues. 

Boardrooms are increasingly navigating complex social issues as organizations face increased pressures from stakeholders to address an expanding roster of societal challenges.These issues, known as the ‘S’ within ESG, are gaining prominence as investors, employees, and customers call on boards to increase their engagement to address new challenges beyond what was previously considered their traditional mandate.

As boards are called upon to address these issues, these new considerations are influencing boardroom agendas and can critically impact an organization’s corporate culture and future performance. In this course, directors will gain practical strategies to monitor and assess the management of social issues, including internal organizational challenges, understand how to integrate social issues into boardroom conversations and how boards are setting parameters for future management engagement.
