In the latest episode of Women Governance Trailblazers, Courtney and Liz are joined by Susanna Morgan to discuss:

  1. Susanna’s career path and current director roles, which include a public company and a private company backed by Andreesen Horowitz.
  2. How directors can handle (or avoid) "information overload" so that they are able to focus on the most salient issues and keep the big picture in focus.
  3. Why corporate governance is an important piece of financial, investor relations, and corporate development roles, and how corporate governance practices may differ between public companies and VC-backed companies.
  4. Practices and approaches that allow executives and directors to get the most out of their relationship with each other.
  5. Advice for effective cross-department collaboration, to balance incorporating different perspectives with moving deliberately toward strategic goals.
  6. What Susanna thinks women in the corporate governance field can add to the current conversation on the societal role of companies.
