Culture in the Boardroom

Different organizations have different boardroom cultures, which can influence decision-making and the overall company culture. Understanding underlying culture – those unwritten, often even unspoken norms upon which all else is built – is essential to governance success.

We are thrilled to be hosting another exciting session with an impressive set of panelists, Michelle Edkins, Martine Irman and Hilary Foulkes, on the topic of Culture in the Boardroom.
