The key topics that should be receiving board attention in the near term have less to do with traditional operational matters, and more to do with social and economic issues of concern to the workforce and the mission. On a recent Governing Health Podcast, Ken Kaufman and Michael W. Peregrine shared their insights about key concerns on topics that include:

  • Social justice board initiatives that have developed in the wake of the George Floyd murder
  • The impact of individual actions regarding equality at the CEO level
  • Addressing current workforce culture and employee retention concerns
  • The impact of rising inflation rates on hospitals and health systems
  • Realities and expectations of today’s board members
  • Forward-thinking advice for board members and directors
