  What You Will Learn

In January, 2018, Larry Fink, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BlackRock, Inc. issued a challenge to all CEOs: how can a company today deliver financial performance to its stakeholders while also communicating “a sense of purpose?” This program, a must-attend for CEOs, General Counsel, Board members, and anyone else who has a stake in the future direction of a company, will answer that question by bringing together a seasoned faculty of experts to discuss key strategies that go into the development of a true, actionable corporate social responsibility, sustainability, and governance plan that will propel companies into the future. How should companies address growing societal pressure on corporations to become more engaged? What responsibilities does a corporation have to society, and how should Management and Boards work together to successfully communicate the corporation’s CSR program and corresponding messaging to shareholders, employees, customers and the communities in which it is based?
