Lead Director Network, October 2020

Recent global protests have pushed diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) to the top of board agendas. Corporate leaders are feeling pressure to turn anti-racism statements and commitments into concrete actions. During an October 5, 2020 virtual meeting, Lead Director Network (LDN) members were joined by James White, co-founder and chair of Directors Academy, and Ivy Kusinga, chief culture and talent officer at Chubb, for a discussion on steps boards can take to enact meaningful, lasting change throughout their organizations.
