Via conference call (Zoom)
The American College of Governance Counsel will host an interactive web-based roundtable discussion on Thursday, January 7, 2021, from 2:30 pm to 4 pm eastern standard time on how companies and their boards are addressing societal issues. The “S” in ESG will be the focal point of this roundtable. The discussion will be introduced by Trustee Bob Mundheim and moderated by Michele Coleman Mayes, General Counsel of the New York Public Library, with commentary provided by Stacey Friedman, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Hilary Krane, Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel, NIKE, Inc., Sandra Phillips Rogers, Group Vice President, Chief Legal Officer, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, Toyota Motor North America, and Michael J. Critelli, former Chairman and CEO, Pitney Bowes Inc. and CEO, MoveFlux Corp.
The roundtable will discuss how a complex set of pressures from myriad stakeholders groups is forcing companies and their boards to reassess the shareholder-centric model of corporate governance. Companies are also challenged to identify the upsides and downsides of taking or not taking a public position or action on a given social issue, particularly given the uncertainty that is prevalent in the world today.
We hope you will join us for what will undoubtedly be a lively discussion. Please RSVP below by January 6, 2021. Dial-in details will be provided to those that RSVP.
