The State of Latinos on Boards: Prospects and Strategies for Executives


Learning from the Activist Investor Playbook to Make You a Better Director 


Corporate governance experts will explore navigating investor activism. What do directors need to do to avoid having their companies be the target of activist investors? And, if they are a target, how do they build a game plan that is in the best interest of the company and shareholders? How are boards successfully dealing with activist approaches, including proxy contests? How is the activism landscape changing and why is board diversity increasingly part of the discussion? How can learning from case studies and the activist playbook make you a better director? What advice do our experts have for board-aspiring executives?


Fireside Chat with David Solomon and Megan Hogan

Mock Board Meetings: A Case Study on the Activist Investor
