Advice on parlaying non-profit board experience to private and public board experience?
What if anything boards leveraged in terms of ESG expertise? Who are Board relying on for this and is it only the c-suite and their management teams?
Please see your free Bolster gift- e-book how to succeed in your first board role https://bolster.com/static/GuCQWBg1r4zN6Q/how-to-succeed-first-board-role.pdf
What about parlaying service on corporate Diversity Advisory Councils to Board Service or even University Trustee Board Service?
If you are executive level, sign up and put your profile in Bolster using this Ascend linkhttps://bolster.com/invite/ascend-Ch5RMNM7h9 and use this resource for creating a great profile: https://bolster.com/static/5odWmKtwpwmffw/anatomy-of-a-great-profile.pdf
ESG = environment, social and governance
Would you characterize board involvement with Heifer International ($131M in revenue) as a nonprofit that would translate well into a for profit board? Heifer received the Ascend Humanitarian Award and has a great mission on fighting hunger and poverty with sustainable agriculture. https://www.heifer.org/
How will board recruitment view the experience of Executive Board Member vs. Independent Board Member?
Please make sure to fill out this quick event survey when you exit. This will help us plan events in the future. Thank you in advance! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSemX9YH5ZRdx-jp8qZgdI38e-9hH4w1UK4f-oW42QdZUTlI2A/viewform
In some cases where non-US entities have invested in U.S. companies the U.S. government can require that the Board have a certain percentage of U.S. citizen members. It's called CFIUS -- Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. But this is quite rare.
Thank you to all our excellent panelists/leaders for your time and sharing your insights.
