Keeping pace amid rapid change

June 2021

The acceleration of innovation has pushed many companies to implement digital strategies faster than they expected. At the same time, board members are keeping a close eye on economic indicators for signs of inflation. Companies are also seeking new ways to explore not just the risks but also the opportunities of enhancing their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices. These trends—combined with lingering uncertainty about when the pandemic will stabilize—pose unique challenges for boards and their compensation committees.

On May 17, 2021, CCLN members met with Morgan Stanley’s Drew Guevara, Colin Stewart, Michelle Wang, and Kyle McDonnell to discuss how these and related trends are shaping their work.
