Major investors are demanding a younger presence in the boardroom for the digital skill sets and perspective they can bring to emerging areas of board oversight, including e-commerce, digital marketing and cybersecurity. To help equip these younger, often first-time directors to be effective in the boardroom, Spencer Stuart, Nasdaq and Boardroom Resources jointly launched Next Gen Board Leaders (NGBL), an initiative designed to foster a community of current and aspiring directors to spark discussion around the challenges, opportunities and contributions of a younger generation in today’s boardrooms.

Spencer Stuart’s Julie Daum and Compute Software CEO Caroline Tsay, who serves on the board of Rosetta Stone and Morningstar, recently discussed the initiative on “Inside America's Boardrooms.”
