COVID-19 pandemic virtual call, May 2020

From April 14 to April 30, 2020, Tapestry Networks convened a series of virtual meetings with the audit committee chairs of more than 100 large US public companies, to discuss how boards and audit committees are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. EY experts and senior leaders joined the audit chairs in these meetings.

Tapestry Networks published two earlier special editions of ViewPoints based upon similar meetings from March 24–April 11. This third special edition synthesizes discussions about two issues and offers questions for reflection.

  • Charting the path to a ‘new normal’ as employees return to work

  • Assessing supply and demand uncertainty as companies restart their businesses
