    1. How Women Change the Conversation on Boards

      How Women Change the Conversation on Boards

      The topic of how to get more women on corporate boards is a lively one at every MPW event, especially so in Asia, where just 9% of corporate directors within Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index, for example, are women. But this discussion moved on from "how to shatter the glass ceiling" to "why it's so important that we do"...

      The Governance Committee:  A Key Element of a Successful Strategy

      I am not a fan of having numerous standing board committees for arts organizations. I appreciate the need for a finance committee, a separate audit committee (the same people who approve the budget at the beginning of the year should not be responsible for auditing financial performance at year end), an executive committee (that can operate when the entire board is in recess), etc. But I prefer board members to spend time in the community, building support for the organization, rather than to sit in endless committee meetings...

      Katy Perry is #1 on Twitter, So Why is the Board All Male?

      Academic and tech entrepreneur Vivek Wadhwa and Twitter CEO Dick Costolo got into a highly-publicized spat last month after Wadhwa criticized Twitter for having an all-white male board and “male chauvinistic thinking.” Then, Costolo called Wadhwa the "Carrot Top" of academic sources. The two duked it out on, you guessed it, Twitter. And since then, Kara Swisher of All Things D, that Twitter is looking for a woman to join its board after the company’s IPO...

      Delaware Court Finds Flaws By Board in Sale of VC-Backed Company

      The Delaware court of chancery found recently that the sale of venture-backed Trados Inc., for a purchase price that was less than the sum of the preferred stock’s preferences plus the payments required under a management incentive plan, raised conflicts that triggered the court’s “onerous” entire fairness review standard.

      Why Jos. A. Bank Fights For Men's Wearhouse

      It seldom happens that a smaller sized specialty retailer will make an effort to take over a larger organization. It is David and Goliath in modern suits.  But that is what is happening in the menswear arena.  Smaller Jos. A. Bank, a respected men’s store with 603 units that achieved sales of $1.05 Billion in fiscal 2012, has made a pitch to take over Men’s Wearhouse with 1,143 units and sales ...

      Proxy Contests on the Rise – Activists Emboldened by Success

      According to data released last week by The Conference Board, activist shareholders are driving a significant uptick in proxy contests. During the first half of 2013, Russell 3000 companies saw more than a 45 percent spike over the same period last year. There were also numerous proxy fights launched against managements of S&P 500 companies, which are traditionally far less vulnerable to such attacks – the continuation of a trend that saw the average market capitalization of activist targets up from $3.9 billion in 2011 to $8.2 billion in 2012.
