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. In 2018, the events organized by the Santiago Center with the Millstein Center continued and, in March, they joined 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, reviewing lessons learned from recent corporate scandals, and in October, the Foundation hosted another seminar focusing on reputational risk featuring Gabriel Cecchini, a renowned consultant in corporate governance, ethics and compliance, as well as ESG aspects of business performance.
The topics covered during events organized by the Santiago Center with the Millstein Center in past years include the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and its implications for Latin America, the Board’s role in transforming non-financial risks into value, workshops on Cybersecurity, 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.
