Board of Directors
Dow’s Board of Directors exemplifies good governance with solid, diverse experience and credentials, and each Director is intimately involved in the strategic planning process, as well the regular and ongoing review of management’s execution of the corporate and business plan.
At Dow, our leadership organization places decision-making at the appropriate level and ensures that the proper checks and balances are in place.
A substantial majority of Dow’s Directors are independent. Together with the appointment of a lead director and use of executive sessions of the Board, the Company’s Board of Directors maintain effective risk oversight, while advising on the development and execution of its strategy and overseeing other enterprise-critical items.
A strong committee system within Dow’s Board of Directors further demonstrates the accountability and oversight maintained by the Company’s Directors.
