Resource Center: Director Onboarding

A systematic approach to new-director onboarding can give direction to what otherwise might seem a flood of information. New directors can accelerate their onboarding by focusing their learning on four core areas: understanding the environment in which the organization operates, learning about the organization itself, becoming familiar with boardroom practices and dynamics, and clarifying individual roles and responsibilities. This resource center and corresponding onboarding handbook are organized by those four key cornerstones, offering new directors insights into how they should conduct their responsibilities and how boardrooms operate.
