This past fall, Heidrick & Struggles was a proud premier partner of the 2022 Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in Laguna Niguel, California. The theme for this year’s convening was “Realizing your power.” The 24th annual gathering bought together women leaders across business, government, academia, philanthropy, and the arts for inspiring conversations, one-on-one interviews, panel discussions, and interactive breakout sessions. This year, Heidrick hosted a series of boardroom panels including “The New Board Metrics of Success.”  

The following video excerpt comes directly from that session and this clip focuses on how leaders can navigate “finding the right board.”
