The Unique And Cutting Edge Issues Currently Facing the C-Suite and Boards

Presented by ACC Women in the House (WITH) Network

As COVID-19 and its accompanying economic downturn continue to test businesses in new and challenging ways, companies are juggling the day-to-day navigation through the crisis, while also planning ahead to manage risk and ultimately thrive in the “new normal”.  In this webinar, an all-women Manatt panel featuring legal and consulting professionals with broad C-Suite, government and board experience offers a deep dive into legal and business considerations for executives, board members, and in-house counsel, including crisis and risk management, brand strategy, and reactive versus proactive strategies.  The 50-minute program will cover practical guidance on regulatory and funding matters, operations, workforce, resiliency, and more, and will be followed by a Q&A session.

Topics include:

  • How the plethora of new federal, state and local laws and policies will impact operations, supply chain and revenue
  • How to reduce legal and operational risk
  • Emerging technologies to consider as part of your company’s response
  • Minimizing the wear and tear on an organization when there is a need for crisis management over a sustained period of time
  • Heightened C-Suite and Board duties and leadership in this particular crisis
  • Documenting strengths and needs as observed during the crisis, particularly a crisis with the potential for multiple waves or phases
  • Planning and preparing for the new normal
