Exclusive & confidential


Next Gen Board Leaders was created in response to the digital complexities and shifting demographics impacting today’s companies. The program is designed to highlight the value that a younger generation of board members can bring to emerging areas of board oversight such as digital transformation, cyber risk, talent strategy, sustainability, and climate risk.
