In 2016, the Santiago Center teamed up with Columbia Law School’s Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership to host a series of workshops on the role of board members in creating long-term value. The topics covered in 2016 included the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and its implications for Latin America, the Board’s role in transforming non-financial risks into value and the duty of care.
They were followed in 2017 by workshops on Cybersecurity, which included a lecture by Bill E. McCracken, Chair of the Advisory Board of the Millstein Center; Corruption and Ethics & Comliance, on which a conference was held in association with Universidad Católica’s Center for Corporate Governance and the North American-Chilean Chamber of Commerce (AmCham); and the inquisitive role of board members.
The Santiago Center also teamed up with Chile’s Carey law firm to organize several events on international securities regulation, corporate finance and capital markets regulation featuring Professor Merritt B. Fox from Columbia University’s Law School.
In 2018, the events organized by the Santiago Center with the Millstein Center have continued and, in March, they teamed up with the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and EY for the Chilean launch of the IndexAmericas, which assesses the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance of companies operating in Latin America.
In April, the Santiago Center went on to organize a conference on Reputational Risk: Lessons from Recent Corporate Scandals, with Daniel Diermeier, Provost of the University of Chicago, as the principal speaker.
