A Primer on Boards

by David Meyer

Influential economist and best-selling author Dambisa Moyo offers a detailed overview of the hows and whys of corporate boards, with a special emphasis on their social and envrionmental responsibilities.

Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World,” Thinkers50 shortlister, and New York Times best-selling author Dambisa Moyo provides detailed insight into the core and evolving responsibilities of corporate boards. Moyo clarifies how boards’ roles and responsibilities have changed with the rise of environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns, and goes on to advocate for more diverse, savvy and assertive boards that guide firms for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Moyo connects the board’s functions to organizational success on almost every page; she makes clear how boards define a corporation’s culture, morals and strategic aims.
