Board Evaluation Disclosure

shared by Glenn Davis and Brandon Whitehill, Council of Institutional Investors, on Wednesday, January 30, 2019
Strengthening board effectiveness is a high priority for many companies and their shareholders. Whether independently or with the help of outside advisors, many boards regularly conduct evaluations to assess their strengths and identify areas for improvement. Robust evaluation processes provide an important conduit for change as companies require new skills, perspectives and strategies over time. For this reason, investors increasingly regard the review process and its disclosure as key opportunities to enhance board effectiveness and shareholder value.
