Los Angeles, CA


Event Overview

The role of the corporate director has evolved over time, and the job has become more demanding in recent years.  Structural changes in our capital markets have contributed to this.  Major corporate crises and the reforms in their aftermath have also impacted what is expected of boards.  The Governance Center is undertaking a year-long examination of the range of expectations of public company directors.  Examining this from the perspectives of key stakeholders in the marketplace, we hope to develop a construct for how we think about the job of a director and analyze what that job entails in different situations.

To date, we have explored the role and expectations of directors from the perspectives of proxy advisory firms (March 1st) and Directors (April 20th). Hosted in collaboration with Latham & Watkins LLP and the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law, in this third session we look to investors - including equity investors, global asset managers, and public pension funds - to share their ideas.

Attendance is by invite-only, open to The Conference Board Governance Center members and invited guests of the Center, Latham & Watkins LLP and the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law.
