The misalignment in technical knowledge grows more acute each day- only 5% of boards have a formal "digital director" identified. Boards are potentially not moving at a digital pace, thus potentially missing critical guidance & feedback for disruptive offense and defensive plays.
Experienced CTOs and CIOs have the expertise, but often do not want to take on Board responsibilities given all the other fiduciary, administrative and regulatory tasks associated with a Board role. Thus an immediate and critical talent gap - at the top.
Please join us as we partner with NIRI for this fireside chat luncheon with Mellody Hobson, President of Ariel Investments, and Jennifer DiGrazia, Senior Vice President of Investor Relations at Ariel Investments.
This program will include a twenty minute presentation by economist Dr. Sung Won Sohn regarding global economic markets and implications for boards, citizens, and investors. The presentation will be followed by a panel of corporate directors considering the significance of related economic and political policies and trends identified in the presentation.
