On behalf of the entire Equilar team, we hope 2022 is off to a great start for you, your families and your colleagues. It’s hard to believe that we’ve reached the two-year mark of the COVID-19 pandemic. While Corporate America has remained incredibly resilient over the past two years, executives and boards still face many challenges as we approach the annual meeting season. Companies that address the most critical issues, such as the Great Resignation, DEI and human capital management (HCM), headfirst are better positioned to excel in the coming year.
Given these trends, our latest issue of C-Suite delves into the top governance issues over the next year. Our cover story highlights key trends and commentary from our Corporate Governance Outlook 2022 report, including how companies are disclosing and addressing topics such as ESG, board diversity and more.
Additionally, we sat down with Peter Gleason, CEO of the National Association for Corporate Directors (NACD), for our feature interview. Peter discusses the inspiration behind the NACD Directorship Certification and his vision for the program. He also shares his thoughts on NACD’s new partnership with Equilar and what it could mean for board diversity initiatives going forward.
For those of you who are joining us for the Board Leadership Forum at the Nasdaq MarketSite in New York City, we’re excited to welcome you back to in-person events! Our speaker lineup of industry experts will offer astute advice on various topics to empower your board to reach its optimal performance. We hope that this is the start of many more in-person opportunities in the coming year.
I hope you enjoy our latest issue. As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or suggestions.
CEO and Founder, Equilar
