How should public company boards address the increasing focus on ESG issues?
Help shape the conversation before the conversation controls you!
This Directors & Boards forum will bring together top public company board members, institutional investors, proxy advisers, judicial and governmental representatives and corporate governance thought leaders. Participants will discuss the character of the modern corporation, how boards can balance profit with social purpose and governance principles, and whether they even should.
This is not a typical governance conference. This is a working event designed to deliver an outcome and is open only to serving public company board members. Attendance is highly limited.
