Corporate governance is evolving, and so is the role of boards in overseeing corporate purpose.

Also known as “purpose governance,” leading boards understand the value and benefits of a clearly articulated and enacted corporate purpose and how it will help position their organizations for future success.

If you’re looking to elevate your board’s role in this work, our latest resource, Purpose Governance Guidelines for Boards will help your board ask the right questions to determine your current governance and flag and address shortcomings.

The framework outlines four main responsibilities for boards in stewarding successful execution of purpose – Strategy and Culture, Performance Management, Monitoring and Reporting, and Governance Protocols – developed for those just beginning their journey and for others who are further along the maturity path.

Download the guidelines today for insights and current examples that can elevate your board’s role in governing your company’s social purpose.

These guidelines have been endorsed “in principle” by Governance Professionals of Canada (GPC), The Directors College, The Chartered Governance Institute of Canada, Competent Boards and Canadian Corporate Counsel Association who are adapting them for inclusion in their governance education offerings.
