Recruiting New Corporate Directors in a Virtual Environment

Inside America’s Boardrooms

Interviewing and vetting board candidates is already a challenging task, now compounded by the remote work environment. Companies, search firms, and even candidates have been forced to adapt and evolve amid an urgency for more racially diverse and/or tech-savvy directors. How have factors like the global pandemic and social unrest impacted the director recruitment process?

In this episode, Julie Daum, North American Board Practice Leader at Spencer Stuart and a veteran of board recruitment, shares how nominating committees and candidates adjust to new recruitment processes:

  • How do issues of racial inequality and representation influence requests from nominating committees?
  • Are boards without tech-savvy board members at risk of falling behind in a virtual work environment?
  • What new corporate leadership trends can we expect to see as we look ahead to the Biden Administration?
