Just like every crisis, climate should be addressed systematically and holistically by your organization. Join Amanda North, CEO of Plan C Advisors, and Britt Ide, Athena Coach and an ESG-focused public company board director, as they guide Athena members in how board directors can influence the creation of a strategic corporate action plan for climate change. They will cover the importance of educating your base, assessing a range of risks, from physical to reputational, evaluating your corporate purpose, catalyzing your entire organization, and communicating changes at every level—from your board to investors to your end customers. You will leave this salon with an overview and a framework to ask questions in the boardroom to better prepare your company for the risks and opportunities of climate change.
