Thought leadership and analysis from our Practices

Board of Directors
The need for high-performing and accountable board leadership is ever increasing as the complexities of the business environment continue to dramatically change. How can boards keep up and optimally operate in these dynamic and often volatile markets?
Diversity
Women are underrepresented at every level, and women of color are the most underrepresented group of all, lagging behind white men, men of color, and white women. Companies report that they are highly committed to gender diversity. But that commitment has not translated into meaningful progress. The proportion of women at every level in corporate America has hardly changed. Progress isn’t just slow. It’s stalled.
Board of Directors
When we think of inspirational words, we often think of those from great leaders: the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Winston Churchill. We don’t often think of contemporary corporate titans, whom we assume are too busy thinking about financial strategy, tumult in global markets, and long-term gains to take pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to give us inspiration and insight into the pressing issues of our times.
