  • The Social Board

    For many company boards, tackling the unmet needs of society is an aspiration that can be delegated to Corporate Social Responsibility teams. They see government as primarily responsible for addressing challenges such as climate change and mental illness, leaving boards to focus on shareholder value. This paper argues otherwise; the relationship between business and society has reached a point where the voice of society needs to be introduced explicitly as a stakeholder in the boardroom.
