Corporate Governance

Since 2016, the Santiago Center has worked to organize a series of events and workshops focused on corporate governance, including ethics & compliance, how boards should address climate change, and the role of directors in creating long-term value. Since then, the Santiago Center decided to expand its focus on corporate purpose and on how to meet Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) challenges.

Events sponsored by the Santiago Center in this area include the webinar “Why Companies Need to Rediscover their Purpose,” featuring Colin Mayer, Professor of Management Studies at the Saïd Business School at University of Oxford and author of several books; “Business Growth Through Purpose,” presented by Myriam Sidibe, author of the book “Brands on a Mission” and Social Mission Manager at Unilever, where she formed the movement to change the handwashing behaviors of one billion people; “Corporate Governance for Startups: The Experience of Silicon Valley,” with Evan Epstein, Executive Director of the Center for Business Law at UC Hastings; and “Business Risk: ESG+T in Times of Pandemic,” with Andrea Bonime-Blanc, who based her observations on her latest book “Gloom to Boom: How Leaders Transform Risk into Resilience and Value,”
