About this event

About this event: Defining the nominating and governance committee role requires broad brush strokes and is critical to keeping the Board up to date with changing landscapes. The committee’s key responsibilities include shaping governance policies, planning for board and committee succession, recruiting and onboarding new directors and driving board effectiveness. Increasingly this means being intentional about putting together a diverse and inclusive board and setting policies surrounding shareholder engagement. As Athena members let’s gather to discuss the changing agenda and critical issues of the NomGov Committee, share new tactics and provide a sounding board for best practices and leadership strategies. This is a safe place to challenge the norms and motivate breakthrough ideas, while learning from each other and from the wisdom of experience.

Chatham House rules: What is said in this group, stays in this group. Sessions are not recorded and will not be part of the library.

Who it’s for: Nominating Governance Committee Members and Board Directors of smaller companies where the entire Board acts as a NomGov Committee

What to expect: A topical theme each meeting with guided questions

10 - 15 minutes introductory remarks, 50 minutes of discussion with the whole group or in smaller break-out groups, depending on number of attendees and topic

We may invite some expert guests selectively

Loosely structured dialogue and occasionally a few slides may be included in a brief presentation or to guide the discussion Sessions will not be recorded or added to the Athena library - this is all about open, honest, and supportive dialogue.

Time commitment: 1 hour meeting every month

Date and time: First Monday of each month at 10amPST/1pmEST
