The Washington D.C. Chapter of Women Corporate Directors Foundation invites you to join us for a thought provoking conversation about the Board’s engagement in strategic planning beyond a “ratifying” role. Topics will include the Board’s framework for collaboration with management in strategy development, adjustment, and monitoring; oversight in the alignment of strategy and risk appetite; tools to facilitate ongoing strategy discussion with management; and much more.
