Recruiting Talent to Meet Corporate Board Requirements and Representation Goals

3:00 PM - 3:55 PM, Tuesday, October 22, 2019 ・ 2nd Floor
By the end of 2019, publicly traded companies in California must have at least one woman director and those targets will increase by 2021. Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey along with other states have considered similar targets which will impact the biotechnology industry. As start-ups and small and medium sized biotech companies consider company growth and future exits, starting early with inclusive hiring practices and board recruitment has become a business priority. Attend this session to gain insight on corporate governance best practices and tips on conducting searches for companies to remain innovative and competitive in this changing environment. Resources for leadership teams and boards will be shared including tools created as part of BIO’s recently launched "Right Mix Matters" campaign.
