About the Event
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) is a broad topic whose definition continues to evolve. It currently incorporates a wide range of issues that includes climate change, natural & human capital management, environmental & social justice, consumer & product safety, and automation & artificial intelligence, to name a few.
ESG is relevant to every company, of every size, and in every industry, as it factors into a company’s long term durability as a successful enterprise. But ESG and ESG risks also impact broader civil society, the economy, financial and insurance markets, supply chains, non-governmental organizations, and many other stakeholders. What is the role of the private sector in addressing these macro-systemic issues and building a more just and sustainable future? What is the role of a corporate board of directors now that ESG and corporate purpose have become mainstream governance topics?
We are pleased to announce that there is a dedicated session on this topic being offered on Wednesday, October 7th from 5 - 7 pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), and we will be joined by Rebecca M. Henderson of the Harvard Business School. Rebecca is “an expert on innovation and organizational change, and her research explores the degree to which the private sector can play a major role in building a more sustainable economy.”
This session is organized by The Boston Club’s Women on Boards Affinity Group as part of its educational programming, and an invitation is being extended to members of the WomenExecs on Boards network to attend.
