Above Board: California's Board Diversity Law

MoFo Perspectives Podcast

29 Oct 2020

In this episode of the Above Board podcast, Dave Lynn, a Washington, D.C.-based partner at Morrison & Foerster, speaks with Jackie Liu and Alexa Belonick, partners based in the firm’s San Francisco office, about a law requiring companies headquartered in California to have a certain number of board members from underrepresented communities.

When determining whether a company must comply, does it matter where the company is incorporated?

How long do affected companies have to comply?

Does the size of the board matter?

What are the consequences of non-compliance?

Dave, Jackie, and Alexa will address these questions and more.
