What others say about the Governance Center

"The Conference Board Governance Center has always been an island of objectivity in a sea of strong and conflicting opinions. In my view, the Center's biggest distinction is its reputation for meticulous, unbiased research, coupled with its ability to bring competing perspectives together for constructive dialogue."

Cathy Dixon, Partner, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP 


“The Governance Center is a unique forum for thoughtful and constructive dialog regarding emerging issues in corporate governance. It facilitates the sharing of ideas that might otherwise be polarizing, in a way that fosters respectful consideration.”
