Aug 01, 2007
  • Description

In March 2007, more than 225 CEOs, trustees, and senior executives gathered in Chicago to discuss a wide range of important issues: the role of strategy and performance assessment, board functioning and the dynamics of race in the boardroom, and the challenge of inspiring -- and leading -- change. Among the report's 11 articles are highlights and lessons learned from presentations by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation President and CEO Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, MacArthur Foundation President Jonathan Fanton, Rosabeth Moss Kanter, the Ernest L. Arbuckle Professor at Harvard Business School, Spelman College President Beverly Tatum, and former Atlantic Philanthropies President and CEO John R. Healy.
