Event summary

Now in its 29th year, the Stanford Directors’ College brings together leading CEOs, directors, regulators, jurists and scholars for a rigorous and balanced examination of corporate governance, strategy and the evolving role of the modern public company board of directors.

Directors’ College is the nation’s premier executive education program for directors and C-level executives of publicly traded firms. The program addresses a broad range of problems that confront modern boards, including the board’s role in setting business strategy, environmental, social, and governance (ESG), CEO succession, techniques for controlling legal liability, challenges posed by activist investors, boardroom dynamics, and contemporary challenges – such as the state of the macroeconomy, the politicization of the corporation, and emerging ransomware and cybersecurity threats.
