An open discussion, although ungraded, provides you with the opportunity to collaborate with your peers regarding specific topics. This open discussion asks you to reflect on your passions, and then share them with your peers.
A board of directors is a group of individuals at the top of an organization with oversight and guidance over management and who look out for shareholders’ interests. The act of oversight and direction is referred to as governance.
