More than 250 board directors and executives from leading companies in North America and Europe work with Tapestry to strengthen board and executive leadership, develop new approaches to issues like board-shareholder engagement, and enhance trust in capital markets.
Tapestry runs networks that are peer-based forums in which to share best practices, develop new thinking, meet with stakeholders, and identify new approaches.
