As the United States has experienced a powerful social justice movement in 2020, business leaders everywhere have looked inward to evaluate their culture, standards and progress on social issues, such as equality, diversity and inclusion. 

“Let’s not confuse effort with results, and boards of directors want results,” says Tracey Walker, RSM’s national senior director of government affairs and culture, diversity and inclusion.

So how can boards and other leaders promote diversity in the workplace, wage equality, standards for measuring social impact and other meaningful change? How can they ensure their companies put the “S” in environment, social and governance issues and their impact on the world?

RSM examines the path forward with this collection of insights from our leaders.

“Published in partnership with NACD, this outsert was originally packaged with the print edition of the November/December 2020 issue of the NACD Directorship magazine.”
